The Information Systems Honours course takes a 'holistic' approach by developing the technological, managerial, interdisciplinary and communication skills and expertise of students. The Department currently offers the following coursework modules at the Honours level:
- Research Methodology; Corporate Communications; Enterprise Architecture; Business Analysis; IT Business Consulting; Software Quality Assurance; IS Management; Agile Systems Development.
- Relevant courses from Computer Science, Management and other departments may also be taken.
All IS Honours students undertake a full Systems Development Project and complete a Research Project. Students also participate in a 4-week industry internship during the mid-year vacation, which provides an excellent opportunity for students to gain valuable insights into the profession whilst still studying. In addition, a number of Value-Added Lectures are presented by industry specialists on a wide range of relevant topics.
Information Systems Honours is the fourth year course for students who majored in Information Systems for their undergraduate degree. It serves as a rounding off year for students and as a grounding year for students who wish to continue with a Master’s degree in IS.
