Year 1
Students will be exposed to introductory and fundamental subjects common to the domain of Information Technology. These subjects include discrete mathematics, computer systems, programming fundamentals, introduction to security, as well as professional ethics and conducts. Compulsory university subjects will be undertaken during the first 3 semesters, with one elective in the second semester. In the second semester, students will get a taste of the specialisation courses by covering requirements engineering and database systems, together with the fundamental, operating system principles. Two other common courses will be covered in the short third semester, namely introduction to information systems and computer networks.

Year 2
The first semester of year two will begin with a mix of common (web design & data structure and algorithms) and specialisation courses (information resource and organisation & human computer interaction), with a compulsory course. Semester two will start with another compulsory module and an elective, followed by three consecutive specialisation courses: knowledge management, human information behaviour, and management information systems. The final third semester will touch on information law and policy, and an elective course.

Year 3
The third year aims to complete the specialisation to information system by focusing on remaining five important areas: digital information technologies and architecture, information assurance, information retrieval, data visualisation, and intellectual property. This is further strengthened by two hands-on specialisation project courses, and to wrap-up the whole programme, the last semester is dedicated to a professional placement internship.
