About Us

The Department of Applied Information Systems is part of the School of Consumer Intelligence and Information Systems in the College of Business and Economics at the University of Johannesburg.

Our programmes focus on providing students with sought-after industry knowledge and skills. Our diplomas and degrees are innovative and flexible, allowing students to focus on an area of IT that meets their interest while providing a core of basic IT skills. This innovation is demonstrated by the recent introduction of specialisations in Software Development, Web and Application Development, Information and Technology Management as well as Support Services. These specialisations include traditional aspects of IT such as software development, secure systems, network management and information systems. These specialisations are offered at diploma as well as graduate level.
