Overview

The course has a general form and also provides students with the option to specialise in archives and recordkeeping, and library and information science. Students may study the general form, complete either specialisation or combine both specialisations. The specialisations are not available to Malaysia, on-campus students.

Career opportunities

The highly flexible course structure opens up a variety of career opportunities. Graduates of the program will be expected to play leading professional roles in the field locally and overseas.

Please select a specialisation for more details:

Archives and recordkeeping

Records managers and archivists ensure that vital records of social and organisational activity are created, managed and made available to business for accountability, corporate memory, enterprise knowledge and cultural purposes. Work settings include most major private and public sector organisations, and archival institutions. Knowledge managers are concerned with developing strategies and processes for managing organisational knowledge and knowledge flows to achieve organisational goals, enhance performance and add value. A particular concern is developing an environment conducive to the creation, sharing and application of organisational knowledge, and systems that support these processes.

Business information systems studies

The general form of the course gives students the skills and knowledge to solve organisational information problems. The course caters for students who would like to be business analysts, information systems consultants and IT managers. Students will learn about information technology principles, systems analysis and design, enterprise architecture and systems, IT management and governance and project management. Students can select from a range of business information systems units to focus their studies in several areas of interest including business intelligence, user experience design and business process modelling.

Library and information science

Librarians and information specialists manage information and provide information services to clients in a wide range of contexts. They are concerned with analysing information needs, solving information problems, evaluating information sources, organising information, synthesising information into targeted information products, and training clients in the use of information products, services and systems. They work for commercial, government and community sector organisations, for information consultancies and as independent information brokers.

Course Structure

The course is structured in three parts, A, B and C. All students complete Part B (core studies). Depending upon prior qualifications, you may receive credit for Part A (foundation studies) or Part C (advanced studies) or a combination of the two.

Note that if you are eligible for credit for prior studies you may elect not to receive the credit.

PART A. Foundations for advanced business information systems
These units provide an introduction to information systems and business concepts, including system design and analysis as applied in professional practice. You will learn basic software programming and development concepts and database technology.

These units are intended for students whose previous qualification is not in a cognate field.

PART B. Core Master's study
These studies draw on best practices within business information systems to gain critical understanding of the theories and practice relating to information systems and business process design, IT strategy, IT governance, IT management and related issues. Your study will focus on project management as well as a choice of several areas of enterprise IT and information management practice.

PART C. Advanced practice
The focus of these studies is professional or scholarly work in the broad realm of business information systems.

You have two options.

The first is a minor thesis research program, consisting of a research project and a research methods training unit. Students wishing to use this Masters course as a pathway to a higher degree by research should take this first option.

The second option is a program of coursework involving advanced study and an Industry experience studio project.

Students completing the combined specialisation Archives and Recordkeeping/Library and Information Science complete the industry experience program.

Students admitted to the course, who have a recognised honours degree in a discipline cognate to information systems, will receive credit for Part C, however, should they wish to complete a research project as part of the course they should consult with the course coordinator.

Overview

Becoming an expert designer and coordinator of information systems projects, with knowledge in data analysis and cyber law, and thus enabling you to take a leading role when tackling any ICT project.

There is hardly a company in the world that doesn’t use ICT in some shape or form and many of them face problems in getting ICT to do what it’s supposed to do. So they turn to ICT technicians for advice. However, more often than not, technical problems are only the tip of the iceberg, and a broader perspective is needed to understand and solve them. Radboud University’s Master’s programme in Information Sciences will teach you to become a digital architect who can look beyond mere technical sides to ICT adoption and assist in designing competitive business solutions.

We’ll teach you the broad theoretical foundations you’ll need to understand the technological aspect of any ICT project that may come your way and we’ll help you look beyond technological concerns when tackling ICT-related problems in practice. Radboud University is well known in the field of information architecture, systems theory, and the quality and security of information systems.

There is a large demand for well-trained information experts who can help implement sound, secure, user-friendly technology. Many of our students are offered jobs even before they graduate, as consultants, project managers or ICT specialists.

See the website http://www.ru.nl/masters/toxicology

Why study Information Sciences at Radboud University?

- Data analysis, privacy and cyber law are the essential components of modern ICT. Radboud University is unique in offering this combination within the field of Information Sciences.

- This programme offers a good mix: forming a solid technical, organisational and legal foundation, getting hands-on experience and developing the insights needed to take a leading role in successful change programmes with active engagement from both technical savvy people and those unfamiliar with the field.

- The field of Information Sciences has the highest chance of finding employment and graduates are offered some of the highest salary for starter position in the Netherlands.

- The second half of your programme offers the possibility of an internship, which in this field is paid and can contribute to financing your Master’s study. We have close contacts with the private sector which can help you to find your own internship position.

- Electives enable you in fine-tuning the focus of this specialisation to meet your own academic and professional interests.

- You will be taught by top researchers and ICT experts of the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS), which was ranked first in the latest national research assessment.

- Some graduates even start their own businesses, something that the Mercator Incubator right here in Nijmegen could help you with.

Technical and management students

This programme is suited for both students with a technological background with management ambitions, as those with a management background and a strong affinity with technology wanting to specialise in ICT. As the programme is a technological programme we do expect the management students to have taken a minor in Information Sciences during their Bachelor’s study, or they will need to take a half-year pre-Master’s programme before being admitted

Our approach to this field

At Radboud University, we believe that a good information specialist is more than an expert in information architecture, systems theory, and the quality and security of information systems. They form the bridge between the people involved. You’ll therefore need to learn to work together with different stakeholders within a project, for example, the super technical programmer, the demanding client and, in some cases, the computer illiterate user. You’ll need to be able represent all their interests and find a solution that’s satisfactory to all. By the end of the programme you’ll be a well-trained digital architect with the necessary managerial skills.

Radboud University's information specialists also work closely with colleagues from other disciplines, such as law, medicine, brain research, and artificial intelligence. Because information systems have a wide application, this Master’s programme shows you how to look beyond the borders of your own discipline. And the annual study trips in the elective ICT in a Different Culture – to countries such as India, Brazil, and South Africa – will also enable you to extend your own boundaries.

Career prospects

There is a big demand for highly trained information experts who can apply good, user-friendly technology. Many of our students are offered jobs even before they graduate. Most go into industry, banking and insurance, or to public-sector organisations such as schools and hospitals.

Students with this Master’s could think of positions as consultants, project managers or ICT specialists. And more companies are adding the position of Chief Information Officer (CIO) to their board of directors. This Master’s programme is definitely a good stepping stone to reaching this kind of position in your future career.

- Your own company

Some students develop their own ideas and innovations while taking part in this Master’s. They see what’s on offer, understand what’s lacking and realise where the possibilities lie. In Nijmegen there are plenty of opportunities for those wanting to start their own business. For example, the Mercator Incubator could help those with a good business plan with advice or even by offering affordable accommodation and other facilities for the first year or two of setting up a company.

This course builds upon typical computing courses available at undergraduate level and develops new knowledge and skills in areas critical for the successful introduction of information systems into business enterprises and organisations.

Information systems (IS) today are large, complex, varied in form and distributed, serving different types of people who use a variety of devices to access information. Specialists who recognise diverse business needs, and have a systematic approach to understanding the impact of technology on organisations, are essential to the success of any IS/IT strategy. Equal in importance to the architectures of systems and the supporting technologies, is the management and delivery of content, whether in the form of data, documents, images and sound.

Increasingly, the fundamental systems comprise digital architectures and networks which then embody and enable the distribution of digital content. Developed information systems are in reality socio-technical systems incorporating people, technologies and content. The information systems specialist becomes a more broadly based information professional as they extend their range and scope of operations towards the end users and their environments. Providing services to users and people at large and ensuring information resources deliver value is equally a part of the wider world of information systems.

Course detail

The course also provides a route for people with other backgrounds and experience to engage with the world of information systems. It helps you gain a full understanding of how information systems are designed and constructed, and of the impact of technology and its integration into an organisation.

It will also give you the skills you need to work effectively in a business-consulting environment, and provide a solid basis for research.

Modules

  • Enterprise Architecture
  • Knowledge Management
  • Consultancy and Technical Innovation
  • Information Systems Project Management
  • UML Component Modelling
  • Advanced Rich Media (optional)
  • Data Architecture (optional)
  • Security Management (optional)
  • HCI for Information Systems (optional)
  • Mobile Applications Development (optional)
  • Research Methods
  • Dissertation.

Format

Diverse methods are used to explore all aspects of the field. A strong supportive culture exists amongst the course tutors which enables students to achieve their potential.

Assessment

Course assessed work is a significant part of the total assessment. There is practical work, report writing, critical academic writing and the skills and knowledge gained in these contribute to a capacity to deliver a high quality dissertation.

There are a number of end of module exams. Course tutors provide appropriate support throughout the module to ensure candidates are well prepared.

Career and study progression

The course aims to provide routes into a number of career options and positions. There are good opportunities for employment in the core IS and ICT functions at the development and service levels. Employers require information officers, librarians, information service staff, content and intelligence gatherers and analysts, researchers, editors, searchers and intermediaries, advice and assistance workers, data managers, management information systems staff, as well as multimedia content workers, mapping specialists and cartographers, marketing research, public relations and communication staff. All these wider information professional positions are grounded in the fundamental core the discipline of information systems and the broader computing and ICT environment.

Graduates have a good record of achieving employment and progressing in professional information work especially in the voluntary and private sector as well as in the public sector.

Outstanding graduates have gone on to further study at the level of MPhil and PhD at UWL and at other institutions. We actively encourage students with potential for research to make their interest known early on in their course.
