∑ Basic knowledge of information and communication technology technology
∑ Basic knowledge of software eningeering or engineering methods and principles in general
∑ Basic knowledge of multi-actor systems
Summary
The purpose of this course is to teach the design of innovative and large scale ICT infrastructures and services in the light of the challenges imposed by the requirements from the systemsí physical, economic and social environment.
Emphasis will be put on the concept and role of ICT-architectures to model information needs and services in order to properly design ICT solutions within a multi-actor context. Attention will be paid to relevant aspects such as flexibility, adaptivity, and accountability. Next, the students will learn how to plan and design a large scale ICT implementation project by partitioning it in phases with for each the suitable decision moments. Finally, students will learn methods and tools for designing IT-services.
Course Contents
The course is structured around a number of main themes
-Enterprise IT-architecture and systems engineering,
-Systems engineering of architecture layers (business, business process, information, application and technical infrastructure layers), principle-based engineering
-Implementation and change management, and
-IT governance

2. The student is able to analyse and discuss problems with regard to designing large ICT-systems.
3. The student is able to apply system engineering and architecture-based approaches to deal with problems with regard to designing large ICT-systems.
4. The student is able to describe methods and tools for designing large and complex ICT-infrastructures and service systems within a multiple actor context.
5. The student is able to apply methods and tools for designing large and complex ICT-infrastructures and service systems within a multiple actor context.
6. The student is able to explain how to apply architectural concepts for translating business needs into ICT-designs within constellation of public and private actors.
