Queensland University of Technology (QUT)
Bachelor of Information Technology (Information Systems)
Develop expertise in working with people, data, business processes and technology to find innovative solutions.
Information systems focuses on identifying organisational requirements and designing effective and innovative IT systems solutions. It may involve helping managers and users clarify their needs, developing data and process models to guide the design of a system, testing and implementing enterprise-wide systems, working with large database applications and developing new digital transformation initiatives within an organisation.
Customise your degree
Foster your passion and shape your career through complementary study areas. As well as choosing a major area of study, your course includes a second study area, which can be either a second major or double minor.
A second major can complement your major area of study, giving you the opportunity to develop a significant depth of knowledge and skills in two discipline areas.
IT Second Major
- Computational and Simulation Science combines the study of science and mathematical models with the use of computers to provide quantitative analysis and visualisation in order to gain insight to the solution of scientific problems from a range of scientific application areas. Computational and Simulation Science second major graduates will be in demand, to apply the latest computing and computational techniques to specialist application areas.
- Data Science provides the necessary skills to be a data scientist including statistical methods and data visualisation, computational tools for and data management techniques for large datasets, and high-performance computing resources and techniques. This unique skill-set in statistics and computing will allow you to cope with sophisticated models applied to complex and/or large datasets.
You might prefer to expand the breadth of your studies by adding to your major with two minors. You can choose from the information technology discipline, or you can broaden your studies by completing minors that offer general knowledge and insights in study areas from across the university.
- Business Process Management is a systematic approach to making workflows of organisations more efficient and effective. You will learn how to discover, analyse, model, improve, automate and monitor business processes.
- Computational and Simulation Science provides students with knowledge of modelling, simulation and visualisation as used in a range of scientific application areas.
- Computer Science develops practical skills in IT system development and an understanding of the basic principles underlying modern computing technologies. Identify and solve systems design issues associated with critical properties such as correctness, efficiency, robustness, usability and security.
- Enterprise Systems are large-scale application software packages that support business processes and information flows across departments. This minor develops the knowledge and skills required in supporting Enterprise Systems within the modern organisation.
- Intelligent Systems explores the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning with applications in robotics and other virtual intelligent systems.
- IoT and Mobile Technologies develops the knowledge and skills to design, develop and distribute applications or games. It examines the role and application of ubiquitous and mobile technologies to the individual and enterprises.
- Networks and Security develops the knowledge and skills involved in contemporary electronic communications infrastructure, concentrating on fundamental networking technologies and information security principles.
- Software Development for IS and Games develops sophisticated software systems in a variety of environments and problem domains. You will study the development of innovative software-based solutions to domain problems and will become familiar with a range of software development techniques and methods and different programming languages and tools.
- Business Intelligence takes a broad focus in areas of business, data and process analysis to allow students to critically analyse data and to make evidence-based decisions based on data.
- User Experience develops the knowledge and skills to engage in user experience design activities involving emerging technologies in order to create new forms of human-computer interaction.
