BSc (Hons) Information Technology and Systems

Introduction

BSc Information Technology and Systems (ITS) increase productivity, improve decision-making and lead to competitive advantage. The BSc programme will equip the student with knowledge and methods to manage information technology within business organisations, covering theory, technical and managerial skills.

This BSc blends recent advances in IT and IS, the internet and web technologies with business applications. It is designed to develop IS professionals who will gain knowledge of information systems design techniques, strategic business disciplines, web technologies and e-business, and who will be equipped with up-to-date techniques for developing Information Technology and Information Systems infrastructure for organisations. This four-year programme consists of a number of core courses taken during the first three years and combination of elective courses in the fourth year. Compulsory modules cover systems development, databases, information security management and project management. The management courses are tailored specifically for IT management.

The programme has been created for people who will assume responsibility for the planning, design and implementation of information systems. It is designed for anyone who is, or aspires to be, a systems analyst, IT project manager or IS consultant.

Aim

The course aims to develop:

  1. understanding of the characteristics of information systems, their management and technology, and their effective utilisation within organizations.
  2. an understanding of information in organisations, the ability to exploit existing software to design and develop information systems, and the technical ability to interact with business analysts, computer programmers, software engineers and computer scientists.
  3. an appreciation of the necessary legal, ethical and professional values appropriate to the provision of information services

Objectives

The intent of the Information Technology and Systems (ITS) program is to produce graduates who are able to achieve the following objectives the student will:

  1. Be equipped with practical as well as theoretical information systems development and management knowledge, plus a sound knowledge of business processes.
  2. Analyze, design, integrate and manage information systems using information technology.
  3. Gain fundamental knowledge regarding technical concepts and practices in information technology and information systems
  4. Gain a broad background across fundamental areas of information technology along with a depth of understanding in a particular area of interest within the domain of information systems
  5. Demonstrate independent critical thinking and problem solving skills, with an ability to analyze the impact of technology on individuals, organizations and society including ethical, legal and public policy issues.
  6. Identify and evaluate current and emerging technologies and assess their applicability to address the users' needs and recognize the need for continued learning throughout their career
  7. Determine how information is inferred from data, and how decisions are made rationally on the basis of that information and ensure that data integrity and privacy is maintained as the organization processes information and acts on it.
  8. Since business today has a lot to do about location, the student will acquire relevant knowledge of digital mapping and basic geospatial intelligence in addressing business, health, community and environmental challenges with Geographical Information Systems (GIS).

Consultation

Consultants from industry and universities, in areas including, computing, Geographical Information Systems and business administration, as well as business owners were engaged in the development of this programme in Information Systems. In addition to these, continuing students of various universities and new graduates were also interviewed regarding their challenges in their studies and in getting employed respectively.

Student Learning Outcomes
