1 UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH AFRICA UNISA S NEW APPLICATION AND REGISTRATION PHASES APPLICATION PHASE First-time students at UNISA must apply for admission on the prescribed form which is to be submitted together with the correct application fees, as well as the documents required for registration. Apply on-line: Cmd=ViewContent&ContentID=16832 or contact the UNISA Contact Centre at / Once the data has been recorded the system will allocate a student number which will be confirmed via , sms or mail depending on the contact details indicated on your application form. A registration package containing the relevant information brochure(s) and registration form will be mailed to you. Students who already have a UNISA student number proceed directly to the registration phase. REGISTRATION PHASE Once a student number has been allocated to an individual, this student number will remain his/her student number at UNISA for all formal qualifications Honours students may apply on-line for registration after the registration period for the particular academic year has opened. However, master s and doctoral students cannot apply on-line and are advised to submit their applications directly to UNISA Sunnyside Campus, Postgraduate Qualifications Counter. When mailing the application, please use: P O Box 392, UNISA, Regional offices can only forward master s and doctoral applications to the Muckleneuk Campus.

2 The registration form together with the minimum instalment required for registration must be submitted before the relevant closing date. Students must please take note that certain degrees are by selection and have earlier closing dates than the normal registration closing dates. Any documents required for registration submitted must be included here, if not previously submitted. Kindly note that only certified copies of academic records issued by the Registrar of the University/Institution concerned are accepted for registration purposes. Degree certificates should not be submitted. All applications for master s and doctoral degrees will be referred to the Section: Postgraduate Qualifications where they will be assessed before being referred to the relevant academic department where the Executive Committee will rule on admission. If approved, students who have submitted their complete application (i.e. all required documents and minimum fees) will automatically be registered after admission has been approved. Other students will be informed of any remaining conditions to be complied with in order to finalise their registration. All other students will be informed of the outcome of their applications and, where applicable, the minimum study fees paid will be refunded. The process outlined above may be time consuming in some cases, especially when we approach the various closing dates when most applications are invariably submitted. It is, therefore, essential that prospective students apply well in advance, especially where deadlines set by employers and sponsors have to be met. ii

9 1. INTRODUCTION This brochure contains information on the following degrees: BSc Honours, MSc and PhD in COMPUTER SCIENCE BSc Honours, MSc and PhD in INFORMATION SYSTEMS BCom Honours in BUSINESS INFORMATICS MTech in INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY as presently offered by the School of Computing at the University of South Africa. This information is also available on our School s home page at In order to determine whether you qualify for admission to these postgraduate degrees, and to understand the admission process, please note the following: Step 1: Read this brochure carefully, taking particular notice of the minimum requirements in each case, as well as the focus areas in which we offer postgraduate supervision. Remember that any attempt at registering for a degree for which you do not satisfy the minimum requirements will be unsuccessful and will cost you valuable time. The onus to prove the equivalence of qualifications and courses obtained at other, particularly foreign universities, is on you the student, and will usually require official documentation concerning the abbreviated syllabi of these courses. Step 2: If you satisfy the minimum requirements, you should contact the Department of Student Admissions and Registrations of the University to apply for admission. In the case of the MTech, MSc and PhD degrees, you should then contact the School of Computing for consultation and the appointment of a suitable supervisor or supervisor. Consult the brochure (also available on the Unisa website regarding administrative details such 1

10 as the general rules for admission to postgraduate studies, documents which must accompany an application for admission, number of modules required for the various degrees, re-registration, duration of study, applications for cancellation and other related details. Step 3: On receiving your registration form from the Department of Student Admissions and Registrations, the School of Computing does a final assessment of your application, and either approves or disallows the final registration based on your study record and the availability of suitable supervision. NOTE: NO REGISTRATION FOR THE MTech, MSc AND PhD DEGREES WILL BE APPROVED WITHOUT CONSULTATION WITH THE SCHOOL OF COMPUTING AND THE APPOINTMENT OF A SUPERVISOR. Step 4: You will be notified in writing by the Department of Student Admissions and Registrations of the University of the decision of the School of Computing. Important note to students with non-south African qualifications: You need to submit your application to the University. The registration section may require you to submit your qualification for evaluation by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) (http://www.saqa.org.za). SAQA evaluates the level of the qualification; the equivalence as far as subject complexity and content are concerned is determined by the School of Computing. This means that although SAQA may, for example, evaluate a qualification as equivalent to honours or masters level, the qualification may still not meet all the requirements for admission to a particular postgraduate degree in the School of Computing. 1.1 COMPUTER SCIENCE OR INFORMATION SYSTEMS? The School of Computing offers BSc Hons, MSc and PhD tuition in both Computer Science and Information Systems. Computer Science focuses on the theory and practice of computing while Information Systems 2

11 focuses on the theory and practice of designing, developing and maintaining computer-based information systems for organisations. The difference between Computer Science and Information Systems may be summarised as follows: Computer scientists are interested in the basic principles that underlie the construction of hardware and software. They ask questions such as: What are the advantages or disadvantages of using this formalism, this architecture, this algorithm, or this programming language? Information systems specialists are interested in topics such as the effect of Information Systems on organisations, the analysis of information flow in an organisation, and the precise specification of information needs. The School also offers tuition at honours level in Business Informatics relevant for study programmes in the College of Economic and Management Sciences. A student in this area would benefit from a basic background in Accounting, Industrial Psychology or Business Management, as well as some experience related to the use of computers in organisations. 1.2 RESEARCH AREAS Honours projects and masters and PhD supervision are offered in the identified research areas of the School. These focus areas are broadly formulated on the basis of factors such as the available expertise within the School and the needs and demands of the computer industry and the community in general. The three focus areas are listed below in alphabetic order: Focus Area: Enterprise Computing Information security Software specification Software engineering Information systems development Software project management 3

12 Focus Area: Human Computer Interaction Human Computer Interaction Electronic education strategies and development (e Learning) ICT for emerging economies Focus Area: Semantic Computing Formal aspects of computing Knowledge systems Natural language processing Research interest areas of supervisors for masters and PhD degrees are also available at 1.3 THE SOUTH AFRICAN DEGREE STRUCTURE The typical progression of South African research degrees consists of four separate degrees: Bachelor s degree Honours degree Master s degree Doctoral degree Many countries have only three separate degrees: Bachelor s, masters and Doctoral degrees. Some countries refer to a bachelor s degree as a Bachelor s degree with first or second class honours. A Bachelor s degree with first or second class honours is equivalent to a South African Bachelor s degree, not to a South African honours degree, and so puts one in line for admission to a South African honours and not a masters degree. NOTE: In 2012 new degree structures will be introduced for postgraduate degrees offered by the University of South Africa, in accordance with the Higher Education Quality Framework (HEQF) document released by Higher Education and accepted in 2007 (Government Gazette, 2007: 25). 4

13 The new structures of the postgraduate degrees offered in the School of Computing, as well as the conversion from the current (until 2011) to the new structures, will be discussed and explained in detail in the Postgraduate Brochure for Please also take note of the obligatory Research Proposal Modules that will form part of the M and PhD degrees as from 2011 (see Section 2.5). 2. THE BSC HONOURS DEGREE IN COMPUTER SCIENCE OR INFORMATION SYSTEMS BScHons (Computer Science) Degree code: BScHons (Information Systems) Degree code: GOAL AND CURRICULUM Eligible students register for either an Honours BSc degree in Computer Science or an Honours BSc degree in Information Systems, depending on the third level modules that they have passed. In either case, to qualify for the honours degree you need to obtain credit for a minimum of ten postgraduate modules, selected from the list in Section 2.5 in accordance with the guidelines and restrictions given in Section ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS Admission to the Honours BSc degree is subject to the approval of the graduate committee of the School of Computing. The following are the general guidelines for admission Basic Requirements 1. You must hold a Bachelor s degree. 2. You must hold a major in either Computer Science or Information Systems as described below. (UNISA s Diploma or National (University) Certificate in Datametrics with appropriate modules serves as a major provided you also hold a Bachelor s degree.) 5

14 For Computer Science at least three of the following third level modules, or equivalents, are required: COS3701 (old code: COS301Y): Theoretical computer science 3 COS3711 (old code: COS3114): Advanced programming COS3721(old code: COS3216): Operating systems and architecture COS3740 (old code: COS340A): Computer graphics COS3751 (old code: COS351D): Techniques of artificial intelligence COS3761 (old code: COS361F): Formal logic For Information Systems the modules INF3703 (old code: INF303D) and INF3705 (old code: INF305F), or equivalent, are required, together with one of the following, or equivalents: INF3706 (old code: INF306G) / COS2626 (old code: COS2269): Computer networks INF3707 (old code: INF307H): Database design and implementation INF3708 (old code: INF308J): Software project management INF3720 (old code: INF320E): Human-computer interaction 2 COS3711 (old code: COS3114): Advanced programming 3. Your academic record must be satisfactory. An average of 60% or more for the final year of the major usually provides direct admission to honours, while an average between 55% and 60% usually provides provisional admission, as elaborated below. 4. Recency: If you completed your major more than five years ago, you should have sufficient professional involvement in computing to ensure that your computing knowledge is current. 5. Internet access: You need to have internet access, for example through work, an internet café or at home. If you do not meet all these academic requirements, you are still welcome to apply for honours admission. UNISA will then specify what preliminary 6

15 study you need to undertake before becoming eligible for admission to the honours programme. Typical requirements for additional study are described below. 2.3 ELABORATING ON THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS 1. Applicants must have a Bachelor s degree and will be admitted according to table 1 below. 2. CS3 denotes a major in Computer Science equivalent to the three module combination in Section above. 3. IS3 denotes a major in Information Systems or Computer Science equivalent to the three module combination in Section above. 4. Admission to Honours in Computer Science requires CS3. 5. Admission to Honours in Information Systems requires IS3. 6. If the major in CS3 or IS3 is older than five years (i.e. dated) then the applicant must have recent relevant experience. 7. Students who satisfy the general honours admission requirements, but who may be missing specific areas in their background, will need to fill in these areas for non-degree purposes as part of their study. Table 1: Admission requirements Standard Provisional admission Admission CS3 or IS3 >=60%) CS3 or IS3 >=55% but <60% CS3 or IS3 <55% "Dated" major, no experience Bachelor s degree without CS or IS major No admission: repeat CS3 or IS3 plus all prerequisite modules 7

16 These guidelines are expressed in table 1 and explained in detail below. 8. Row 1: Recent bachelor s degree with average mark for CS3 or IS3 >=60% with the required relevant subjects: standard admission, with a maximum of five years to complete the honours degree. 9. Row 2: Recent bachelor s degree with average mark for CS3 or IS3 >=55% but < 60% with the required relevant subjects: provisional admission for the first year of honours. Provisional registration means the following: If the student passes at least three honours modules in the first year of registration he or she may continue with the honours programme (with a maximum of five years in total to complete). If the student does not pass at least three honours modules in the first year of registration, the student must first achieve an average of >=60% for three specified CS3/IS3 modules before continuing with the honours. Any credits obtained for the honours are retained for four years. 10. Row 3: Recent bachelor s degree with average mark for CS3 or IS3 < 55% or a dated Bachelor s degree: Appropriate UNISA undergraduate modules, selected in consultation with the School. Subsequent admission to honours is in terms of row 1 or row 2 above. 11. Row 4: Bachelor s degree without CS or IS major: Three UNISA COS3/INF3 modules plus all the prerequisites for these modules, selected in consultation with the School, with an average of >=55%. Subsequent admission to honours is in terms of row 1 or row 2 as indicated above Appropriate undergraduate modules Where needed, UNISA will specify appropriate undergraduate modules to provide the necessary background for honours study and whether these should be taken prior to admission to or concurrently with honours study. 8

17 2.3.2 Exemptions Exemptions may be considered by the graduate committee of the School of Computing for any of the undergraduate modules on the basis of credits obtained at other tertiary institutions, previous study at UNISA, or knowledge gained through experiential learning Articulation The BSc, BSc Hons, MTech, MSc and PhD degrees in the School of Computing are research-oriented science degrees. However, they do not represent the full spectrum of study in computing. Regularly applicants with other qualifications, for example BEng (Computer Engineering), want to enrol for Hons BSc through UNISA. It is difficult to give hard and fast guidelines for admission in these cases. For example, suitable South African BTech or BEng degrees usually provide admission to honours. However, there are also some foreign BTech and BEng degrees that are comparable to a Hons BSc, and so they could give admission to the MSc programme. UNISA treats each case on its individual merits and will prescribe a suitable course of study for cases in which the background does not match the background needed for direct admission to honours study. 2.4 UNDERGRADUATE MODULES FOR NON-DEGREE PURPOSES There are two reasons why one may wish to do an undergraduate module for non-degree purposes: as preparation for postgraduate study in a subject for which one s background is inadequate, or in order to pursue an interest not catered for by the curriculum one is following. For the official UNISA policy in this regard, please consult Part 1 of the UNISA Calendar. Rule A18 deals specifically with registration for nondegree purposes (NDP). 2.5 POSTGRADUATE MODULES The remaining part of this section consists of the following: 1. A list of the postgraduate modules offered by the School 2. Details on including modules from other departments in your curriculum 9

20 F POSTGRADUATE STUDIES IN COMPUTING COS417E: Theory of program languages 2 COS418F: Compiler construction COS419G: Operating systems COS427G: Computer architecture COS435G: Advanced numerical methods COS460H: Capita selecta 1 (Computer Science)F INF430K: Network management Modules in other UNISA departments and colleges In the College of Science, Engineering and Technology, a student may include up to two honours papers or four fourth level modules from another subject(s) in his or her honours curriculum, subject to the approval of the graduate committees and/or heads of the departments or schools concerned,. This can only be done if the graduate committees and/or heads of schools or departments consider that the student has sufficient background knowledge to be able to offer such papers/modules and it is in the best interest of the student. Note that a "paper" is usually equivalent to two "modules". If a student takes the maximum of four modules (or two courses) from another subject, he or she may not include any project or capita selecta module (COS460H, COS461J, COS498X, INF412H, INF460R or INF461S) in his or her curriculum Guidelines for selecting and combining modules There are a number of restrictions in composing your curriculum: 1. Students may include a maximum of three of the following modules in their curriculum for the honours degree: (a) COS460H (b) COS461J (c) COS498X or INF412H (d) INF460R (e) INF461S NOTE: None of these modules is compulsory for the honours degree. 4 For more information on the content of COS460H see section

21 2. All students registering for the honours degree for the first time from the 2004 academic year onwards must include a Research for Computing module (either COS462K or INF462T) in their curriculum. This credit must be obtained before registering for a project module unless a student has permission to register for all ten honours modules in a single year (but see point 5 below). 3. Students registering for the honours degree for the first time in the 2011 academic year may not include either COS498X or INF412H in their curriculum. 4. The notional hours needed per module per year are 120 hours. This is the minimum amount of time needed to master the contents of a module. We therefore recommend that part-time students should not enrol for more than 4 modules per year in order for them to spend enough time per module. 5. Based on the modules available within the School of Computing, the following applies: (a) A student must have six or more COS4xx module credits for an honours degree in Computer Science. (b) A student must have six or more INF4xx module credits for the honours degree in Information Systems. (c) Modules with similar codes offered by other schools, for example INFMAN, do not count towards these six credits. 3. THE BCOM HONOURS DEGREE IN BUSINESS INFORMATICS BComHons (Business Informatics) Degree code: GOAL Market research indicates that there is a demand for people who are well trained in general business principles and organisation management, and who are also proficient in information technology (IT). These people are expected to be business analysts, especially on the users side of the 13

22 development of computerised information systems. They should be well informed of the possibilities offered by IT in improving the efficiency of the business. They should understand the impact that computerised systems might have on an enterprise, especially on changes in business processes and how to manage such changes. To support this knowledge, they should also have a thorough understanding of modern development methodologies and the utilisation of computer and telecommunications technology to manage all phases of development, implementation and maintenance of distributed business information systems. By offering the Honours BCom degree in Business Informatics, we are able to accommodate students with a BCom background who do not meet the programming or mathematics prerequisites required for the Honours BSc degree. 3.2 CURRICULUM The curriculum consists of ten module credits made up as follows: 1. Four compulsory modules: INF431L: Information security 5 INF450P: Information systems development: methodologies, techniques and tools 6 INF417N: Software engineering INF418P: Databases: advanced concepts AND 2. Any two approved courses (i.e. the equivalent of four modules, with each course carrying the credit of two modules) at honours level chosen from the following list of subjects in the College of Economic and Management Sciences: 5 6 Students with a credit for INF430K: Network Management may substitute this for INF431L: Information Security on the list of compulsory modules. Students who have previously passed INF405J may not register for INF450P. 14

23 Accounting Accounting (Local government) Auditing Internal auditing Business management Economics Industrial psychology Quantitative management Transport economics Logistics AND 3. Any two modules chosen from the following: INF412H: INF420H: INF425N: INF462T: Project module (Note that INF462T: Research for Computing (Information Systems) is a prerequisite for this module.) Human-computer interaction Software project management Research for computing Notes: 1. Honours modules in Information Systems assume that students have experience in programming. If you lack programming experience, we strongly recommend that you register for either COS1514 (old code: COS114X) or COS1511 (old code: COS111U) and COS1512 (old code: COS112V) for non-degree purposes. 2. You need to have internet access either through your work, an internet café or at home. 3.3 ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS To gain admission to the Honours BCom degree, you have to satisfy certain formal requirements. 15
