Better government through technology

e-Government is a growing area. As our world becomes increasingly connected through ICT, governments need skilled professionals who understand how to manage the impact of these ever-evolving technologies.

At Victoria's School of Government, you'll discover innovative new uses for ICT—building new ways for communities to engage with government and use public services.

Develop the knowledge and ability to implement and manage large government ICT projects, and learn how to deal with change in sensitive government environments—balancing the need for security and the desired outcomes of internal and external stakeholders.

A unique qualification in an emerging field

Victoria's Master of e-Government is the only course of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region.

Focusing on the management rather than the technical aspects of e-Government, your courses are designed by experts in government and ICT and taught by leading academics in this new field.

International students, global insights

Be part of a school that attracts not only local professionals but a talented group of international students—many highly experienced employees of government organisations in their own countries. Take advantage of the diverse experience in public policy and public management these students take to the classroom—providing valuable insights and bringing the comparative perspective alive.


Postgraduate study at Victoria will help you build valuable relationships and networks with peers, university staff and future colleagues.

You’ll get an orientation to introduce you to the people you’ll work with, a working space with desk, computer and storage, and use of a common room or kitchen when you want to take a break or mingle.

You'll also have opportunities to attend events, workshops, social functions and seminars such as the Student Learning Postgraduate Research skills sessions.


You'll be well-placed to take part in the emerging area of e-government, leading and managing ICT projects at government departments or non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

And while you'll develop skills that will uniquely prepare you for e-government projects, you'll also have capabilities and knowledge you can use in private industry.


You can look for scholarships based on your level of study, subject area and background.
