The IS Department offers a range of programmes and courses accommodating students from 1st year to PhD levels. Our undergraduate programme ties in with the internationally recognised IS curriculum.

Our postgraduate courses cater for both part-time and full-time students. Our postgraduate offerings in the Post graduate Diploma, Honours, Masters and PhD areas compare excellently witcourses offered by other leading universities in the global arena. In all courses up to Honours level extensive practical project work is done with a variety of system development tools.

At senior levels, University of Capetown students interact with real clients outside the university, building valuable career skills while developing small commercial applications.
