Information Systems – School of Information Systems

The School of Information Systems is committed to excellence in teaching and research in the field of information systems, and teaches on both the Hobart and Launceston campuses and at the North-West Centre. It is responsible for the Bachelor of Information Systems, Bachelor of Information Systems with Honours, Master of Information Systems, Graduate Certificate in Information Systems (subject to Council aopproval),Graduate Diploma in Information Management (subject to Council approval), Graduate Diploma in Information Systems and research higher degrees (master and PhD) in information systems.

The field of information systems has a theoretical basis in the understanding of systems, of organisational behaviour, and the modelling of information.

Graduates in information systems are employed to manage information within organisations, and to develop systems that process that information.

The courses offered provide relevant knowledge of information technology and have a strong emphasis on the organisational and social contexts within which that technology is used. There is an increasing demand for information systems professionals who have a broad appreciation of electronic business and electronic commerce and who can successfully work to shape the information-oriented companies and industries of the future.

Information systems units can be studied within the BIS, BIS–LLB, BA, BComp, BCom, BCom–BIS, BFA-BIS, BIS-BMus, BEc, BSc, GradCertIS, GradDipIM and GradDipIS degrees.
