By the end of this course, you will have a comprehensive understanding of the entire system development lifecycle, from initial requirements analysis to system implementation and maintenance.


In the ever-evolving world of information technology, the ability to design and develop effective and efficient systems is a skill that is in high demand. The “System Analysis and Design” course is your gateway to mastering the art and science of creating robust and innovative systems that meet the complex needs of businesses and organizations.

Week 1: 

Session 1: Introduction to Systems Analysis and Design 

  • Overview of systems analysis and design process 
  • Key concepts and terminology 

Session 2: Understanding the Problem Domain 

  • Techniques for gathering requirements (interviews, observations, etc.) 
  • Documenting user requirements 

Week 2: 

Session 3: System Modelling 

  • Introduction to system modelling techniques (data flow diagrams, use case diagrams, etc.) 
  • Creating system models to represent processes, data flow, and interactions. 

Session 4: System Design 

  • Design principles and best practices 
  • Translating user requirements into system design specifications 

Week 3: 

Session 5: User Interface Design 

  • Principles of effective user interface design 
  • Prototyping and usability testing 

Session 6: Implementation and Deployment 

  • Strategies for system implementation and deployment 
  • Testing and quality assurance 

Throughout the three weeks, live engagement sessions (twice a week) can include the following: 

  • Reviewing and discussing key concepts from the previous sessions 
  • Demonstrating practical examples and case studies 
  • Facilitating group discussions and Q&A sessions 
  • Providing guidance on assignments and exercises 
  • Assignments (to be completed on non-engagement days): 
  • Practical exercises to apply concepts learned in each session. 
  • Case studies for analysis and design practice 
  • Small-scale project assignments to simulate real-world scenarios. 

By incorporating both live engagement sessions and practical assignments, learners will have the opportunity to reinforce their understanding through hands-on experience. 

It’s important to note that the curriculum can be adjusted based on the learners’ background and the specific learning objectives. Additionally, we shall be providing additional resources such as recommended readings, online tutorials, or video lectures that can further enhance the learning experience.
