Course Structure and Content

The course structure consists of 18 core subjects - 14 core professional subjects in the areas of information systems and ICT, 4 core business subjects and 6 elective subjects.

The structure of the proposed Bachelor of Information Systems course is as follows:

  • 4 core subjects at introductory level (2 IS subjects and 2 business subjects)
  • 9 core IS subjects
    • 3 capstone IS subjects
  • 2 additional business core subjects
  • 6 elective subjects

Offering 4 core subjects at the introductory level provides students with exposure to basic offerings in both IS and business related subjects and provides a flexible pathway should they wish to change major after completion of these 4 core subjects.

The core IS subjects provide essential core units relating to IS while the 3 capstone subjects are taken in the final year. These are considered strategic in nature, providing a synthesis of material already studied in other units, integrating technology/people/management issues.

Each subject has three hours of contact per week over a 12-week teaching semester (36 contact hours). A normal full-time load consists of four subjects in a semester. The table below indicates the sequence of study where a student completes core and a combination of electives over the three-year period.

The four core introductory subjects are as follows:

  • HS1011 Data Communications and Networks
  • HS1021 Web Design
  • HC1031 Managing People and Organisations
  • HC1062 Decision Making and Problem Solving
