Course objectives

Information Systems constitute the primary application of computers and related technology in enterprises and public organizations. Following a well-defined methodology helps to ensure the effective deployment of information technology in organizations. This includes determining and structuring requirements, project planning and execution, implementation, testing, and maintenance. Since information systems development is essentially a process, students will work in groups on real-life projects that conclude with the presentation of a prototype system.
