The IT industry appreciates and demands graduates who have competence in conducting research and development, which differentiates an expert from a group of practitioners. Consequently, many research and development projects led by experts impact people’s lives and the modern living styles. Furthermore, scholarly calibrated research projects bridge the gap between latest results published by field experts and inadequate practice of the reality. The benefits of carrying out these Master research projects include accelerating the deployment and the use of latest IT inventions, disseminating results and outcomes to peers, contributing to the body of knowledge, and transforming knowledge into practices.
