Details

Information Systems are becoming integral to modern culture and are a primary engine behind much of the world's economic and social change. In essence, they represent the knowledge and skills that are required to be a part of the competitive business environment.

Today, to implement technology, practising professionals need to not only have knowledge and skills in information and communications technology, but they also need to understand the context in which computer technology can best be selected, applied and implemented.

Within the Bachelor of Information Systems at Western Sydney University, you will learn how to plan, develop and integrate applications and information systems into a global business environment.

You will also carry out a real-life project where you will need to demonstrate that you can design and develop an information system solution that can solve a real community/business based problem.

The Bachelor of Information Systems is accredited with the Australian Computer Society at Professional Level.

In 2017 the Bachelor of Information Systems (Big Data major) will also be offered at the new Sydney City Campus. Intakes will be February, June and October.
