Expand your understanding of information systems and their design and development.
All organisations require information systems to operate efficiently and competitively, so we have developed this programme based on the techniques of developing such computer based application systems.
The course is structured to develop your knowledge of information systems to an advanced level in a relatively short time and provide you with the skills employers require.
You will focus on how these systems work, how the requirements for them are established and how they are designed and developed. You will gain an overview of the importance of systems to organisations as well as gain technical and communication skills which the industry values.
Develop an understanding of information systems management and development in organisations, and learn how to design and implement information systems solutions.
You will also gain transferable skills in project management, time management and communication. This course is studied full-time over one year or part-time over two and a half years.

Study modules mentioned above are indicative only. Some changes may occur between now and the time that you study.
You may find employment in computer departments of organisations as a trainee programmer, software engineer, system builder, analyst or system tester. Alternatively, you could move into business as a graduate trainee, particularly where a good understanding of information systems, and their potential, is valuable. This degree and the experience you will gain of creating and commissioning computer solutions can open up new opportunities in your existing area.
