    In my Information Systems degree, I'm required to do 24 UOC's worth of free electives from any department . Does anyone know any relatively easy essay-based electives people generally pick?

    IT/InfoSystems graduates: Where are you now?

    IT/InfoSystems graduates: Where are you now?

    IT/IS graduates, what are you doing now and how long did it take you to find your first IT role? I've heard from a number of my friends that graduated with a UNSW Information Systems degree that they're really struggling to find a job in the IT industry and are forced to work in...

    UNSW Business Infomation Systems Co-op Interview Tips

    They altered the difficulty of the course this year apparently, to stop people who can't java for shit from entering java 2. Assignment B and finals this sem was fucking ridiculous (Literally every person I know that didn't outsource their work got about 55% for assignment B)

    UNSW Business Infomation Systems Co-op Interview Tips

    @OP, they're likely to ask you why you want to choose Information Systems and why you're passionate about Infosys, as well as why you should get in. You should tell them why you love technology, etc. First year BIS courses are pretty boring to an extent (unless youre really really passionate...

    MATH1041 vs ACCT1511?

    1st year info sys student here too! If you were looking for WAM boosters i'd go for ECON1101 over ACCT1511. You only need to choose one over the other and unless youre really good at accounting, you'd need to put in alot of work into it (past students told me it was really dry and reasonably...

    INFS1609 subject review

    Can anyone who's done INFS1609 give some opinions on the subject in general? Any lecturers/tutors to watch out for? Is it particularly hard/easy? Is the workload heavy?

    MGMT1001 vs. ECON1203

    Which of the two infamous WAM destroyers is harder (if im an english oriented person)? I should probably mention that I'm trying to transfer into another course but I have to do one of these this sem, does that mean my WAM is dead
