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.

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.
