Specialisation in Information Systems

Students will learn how to design, develop and maintain large systems for the indexing and retrieval of all kind of information, from database records to textual information or multimedia and Web hypermedia (images, video, etc). An ICT professional requires nowadays a mix of technical know-how comprising skills such as project management, information architecture, and human-computer interaction. This specialisation is designed to address these gaps and to educate ICT professionals to play a leading role.

The Information Systems specialisation aims at preparing students for leadership careers in the area of information systems design and development, information systems quality assurance, information systems integration and information systems project management.

Across the two years students must acquire:

  • 30 ECTS out of 36 ECTS of core courses
  • 18 ECTS of “Information Systems” tagged courses and write their thesis in the same area

6 ECTS can be acquired from non-INF Master programmes at USI.
