Welcome To Information Systems
Definition of Information Systems:
Information Systems are a means by which organisations and people use computers
to collect, process, store, use (analyse) and distribute information.
The study of Information Systems involves people, information, business
processes (activity to develop & deliver product or service) & IT (Computers)
Information Systems focuses on the business organisation (People, business
processes, information and technology), whereas Computer Science focuses on the
technology and requires more mathematical and technical skills.

practical project work that includes the use of a wide variety of system
development tools. Our postgraduate offerings cater for both part-time and

well as interaction with real clients outside the university.
Our degree programmes are regularly reviewed to maintain
teaching quality and with content geared to meet the challenges of rapidly
changing subject material. The success of our programmes are reflected by our
excellent record of graduate employment.
