<div><p>It's inconceivable to think of our world without communication and information systems. They've influence in almost every aspect of our lives and develop at a pace that's difficult to keep abreast of. This module will teach you to understand key technologies that underpin these systems; and introduce you to a range of issues that arise from their deployment. You'll develop your skills in the management and use of communication and information technologies; your ability to communicate ideas and information about them; and your ability to keep updated with new technological developments.</p></div>
