NQF Level 5 | Technology | Part Time Study
Drive the innovation that will power the next industrial revolution.

Robotics systems are a way of automating manufacturing applications while reducing the amount of labour and production costs and time associated with the process. An intelligent system is a computer-based system with an embedded, internet-connected computer that can learn about the structure of a data, analyse the data to extract patterns and meaning, derive new information, and identify strategies and behaviours to act on the results of its analysis.

The Higher Certificate in Information Systems (Robotics and Intelligent Systems) is a career-focused qualification that is intensive but also broad. It provides you with the fundamental and technical knowledge as well as the applicable skill set in Databases, Python Programming, Statistical Thinking in Python, Supervised Learning with scikit-learn and Deep Learning in Python. You will also cover topics such as Computer Literacy, Program

Design, Processing and Logic Concepts. Throughout the qualification, you will complete technical projects and 
“challenging problems” that will make you well prepared and empowered for the world of work. We attribute much of the success of our Higher Certificate programmes in Information Systems (IS) to our unique Mastery Learning Methodology (MLM) platform.

The MLM route, which is a modular self-directed learning approach, gives you the flexibility to start and progress through the programme at a pace that best suits you. This learning methodology together with our cutting-edge facilities such as computer labs, IS open learning areas, hardware
