NQF Level 5 | Technology | Higher Certificate | Degree: Higher Certificate in Information Systems | Saqa Id: 120688

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 “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 LBL and MLM platforms. 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.

The LBL route gives you the opportunity to attend and participate in lecture presentations over a specific period. These learning methodologies together with our cutting-edge facilities such as computer labs, IS open learning areas, hardware pods and smart pods, will prepare you for the real IT work environment of the future.
