  • Overview

    Information systems that are specifically designed for an organisation provide a considerable competitive advantage. This course addresses design at several levels: user experience, architecture and object-oriented software design. Students learn to manage the design process in a team environment, drawing on previous courses to take a system from analysis through design to a prototype implementation using the latest modelling and development environments.
