Postgraduate Certificate in Informatics

Course Overview

The Postgraduate Certificate in Informatics (Information Systems Audit) programme is primarily designed to provide students with deeper insight, intellectual and cognitive skills related to their professional field and area of employment and help them to advance their career of choice. This programme will further expose students to advanced concepts, theories, tools, and methods of Information Systems Audit. The overarching aim of this programme is to prepare students for a career in the Information Technology (IT) audit field and for certification as an information systems auditor or information security specialist. Students will be able to take-up a certification course in this field and may become members of professional/association bodies such as the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA). The Postgraduate Certificate in Informatics (Information Systems Audit) will not lead to further academic study, but graduates would gain credit for relevant courses should they opt to register for the Bachelor of Informatics Honours.
