Companies and public agencies are employing digital technology to transform their business models and processes.
At the School of Computing and Information Systems (SCIS), we seek to create computing knowledge for this digital transformation, and to apply the knowledge in training IT professionals who innovate solutions that create value to business and society.
We offer four undergraduate computing programmes that target different job roles demanded by employers. A common thread through these programmes is our emphasis on designing and building solutions for realistic use cases, and partnering industry to impart relevant skills to our students.
Our BSc (Information Systems) Information Systems major teaches students to identify emerging technologies and market trends, exploit opportunities to digitally transform an organisation, and develop applications that harmonise with the overall IT infrastructure.
Our BSc (Information Systems) Smart-City Management and Technology major is a unique interdisciplinary programme that trains professionals in blending social, economic, business, environmental and technology concerns to develop smart city solutions.
Our BSc (Computer Science) degree emphasises strong technical skills in translating scientific principles to usable computing technologies and solutions, as well as the management skills needed to navigate complex software development and system deployment concerns.
From 2020, we are partnering the SMU School of Law to offer a BSc (Computing & Law) degree. This degree equips students with the skillsets to protect technology innovation, comply with pertinent legal and regulatory requirements, as well as manage the technology and business risks posed by innovation.
I am confident that you will find the programmes as exciting as our students and employers do.
