Il-Master of Science in Information Technology and Systems jipprovdi ħiliet fundamentali f’varjetà ta’ oqsma avvanzati tal-ICT, bħall-cloud computing, il-big data u l-Internet talOġġetti (IoT), b’enfasi fuq l-iżvilupp ta’ soluzzjonijiet intelliġenti, kemm bl-użu ta’ ħardwer kif ukoll ta’ softwer. Il-programm jiffoka fuq is-softwer bħala infrastruttura ta’ servizz, il-ġestjoni talinformazzjoni, is-sistemi tal-intrapriżi u l-loġistika elettronika. Issir enfasi wkoll fuq l-istrateġija u l-ġestjoni tas-sistemi, l-innovazzjoni tal-proċess tan-negozju u ċ-ċibersigurtà. L-elementi ewlenin tal-programm huma t-teknoloġiji tas-sigurtà tan-netwerk u l-ġestjoni tad-data, kif ukoll in-netwerking definit mis-softwer, u l-qasam il-ġdid tal-hashing u l-kompjuting distribwit, karatterizzat minn sistemi distribwiti tal-kontroll tal-verżjoni u applikazzjonijiet tal-cryptocurrency ibbażati fuq il-blockchain.
