The Department’s IT strategy contributes to the Department’s overall strategy, and is set in the context of the broader IT strategies of the School of Technology and the University. It sets out the following aims:
- To support the general aims of the Department and to support its teaching, research, administration and other service areas.
- To provide systems which facilitate the Department’s activities, deliver value for money within the available resources and prioritise those areas that have the maximum beneficial impact.
- To ensure a quality of IT provision commensurate with the Department’s excellence in Teaching and Research. This includes the Department’s external electronic presence as well as internal systems.
