The pervasiveness of technology in the knowledge economy has resulted in increasing demand for professionals with a unique blend of analytical, technical, business and communication skills.

In Information Systems, we study what happens when technologies, people, organisations and societies interact. Technology now lies at the heart of a dynamic, information and knowledge-driven world that needs people to point the way, people who “get it”. Our analysts solve “real world” problems, using technology to build systems that allow for quicker and smarter responses to changes in dynamic and complex environments.

It is important to note that we focus on the design of end-to-end solutions of which technology may be an element, and not only on technology for the sake of technology. This is what differentiates us from other disciplines such as Information Technology (IT), Computer Science and Software Engineering.
