This course prepares students for a variety of occupations in the field of computer-based information systems including technical, user and customer support. Emphasis is placed on the role of computer technologies in contemporary organisations. The study of information systems goes beyond computer hardware and software. It involves understanding the decision-making structures within an organisation and building information systems to support the needs of decision makers. Students learn the technical skills together with the human and business skills needed to apply and manage these skills in an organisation.

Three compulsory units of Professional Industry Experience are also incorporated in the degree. The Professional Industry Experience gained over the three years is designed to assist students to link their studies to the 'real world' of work, and to assist in gaining career employment on graduation.

Professional Recognition

The course has provisional professional level accreditation with the Australian Computer Society in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland.
