Computer Information Systems program structure

At undergraduate level, you’ll study a BSc in information systems over three or four years, depending Bachelor’s degrees in computer information systems last at least three years, but most universities offer a four-year placement option. Industrial placements are valuable opportunities to put what you’ve learned into practice and explore future career prospects.

Most institutions offer a range of elective modules, so customizing your degree to suit your interests is easy. However, you’ll still be required to take core units in the following areas:

  • Information systems management
  • Networking theory and practice
  • Foundations of programming
  • Web technologies
  • User experience and requirements
  • Systems administration and maintenance
  • Mathematics for computing
  • Computer security
