Course Outline
Information System Analysis and Design –
(CSE-373)
Course Description:
This course provides the student with a practical
approach to systems analysis and design using a blend of
traditional developments and current technologies. The
student will learn how to apply the Six phases of the
systems development life cycle.
1A. SPECIFIC COURSE OBJECTIVES:
 To introduce the student to different approaches to Information
systems analysis and design.
 To define and explain types of system, Business environment,
Computer Based Information System(CBIS) I

To define and describe the six phases of the systems
development life cycle (SDLC).
 To describe in detail the systems planning, systems analysis,
systems design, systems implementation, and systems operation and
support phases of the SDLC.
 To implement the five phases of the SDLC in solving a real world
information technology problem.
 To provide the student with a system analysis toolkit which can help
in developing the five stages of the SDLC.
 To provide the students with a background into how IT supports a
business environment.To provide the students with background into
the role of a systems analyst and how they interact with users,
managers and other IT staff.
1B: COURSE COMPETENCIES
