In this Systems Development unit, you’ll learn the theories and methodologies behind contemporary systems development. Provided online by Swinburne University and Open Universities Australia, the unit explores how different systems succeed and fail, and why.
To begin with, you’ll be mentored through an understanding of software engineering theory and the practices behind commercial systems. You’ll use this theoretical base to examine the requirements, variability and risks of designing and operating new systems in relation to individual business needs.
The fundamentals of system design and analysis will be covered to equip you with an essential understanding of system software construction. With this knowledge, you’ll be able to compare and critique different system development methodologies and their applicability to different organisations or businesses.
The unit will also cover the ethical and social issues of system development, with particular reference to building trust and managing stakeholder expectations.
