Toelatingsvereistes

Relevant BCom degree with 60% for Informatics on 3rd year level or equivalent IT courses.

Preparatory work for the honours degree, as determined by each Head of Department, with an assessment thereof, is compulsory for all candidates. Candidates can be exempted from this requirement if they pass an exemption assessment as determined by the head of the department concerned.

A candidate may be refused admission to an honours degree by the Head of Department if he or she does not comply with the level of competence required in the subject as determined by the department – with the proviso that a candidate, who fails to comply with the level of competence required, may be admitted if additional study assignments, as agreed upon, are completed and/or examinations are written.

A candidate, who is refused admission to an honours degree, may request that the Dean reconsiders his or her application for admission in terms of the set procedures.

Eksamens en slaagvereistes

In calculating marks, General Regulation G12.2 applies.
Subject to the provisions of General Regulation G.26, a head of a department determines, in consultation with the Dean

  • when the honours examinations in his/her department will take place, provided that:
  1. honours examinations which do not take place before the end of the academic  year, must take place no later than 18 January of the following year, and all examination results must be submitted to the Student Administration by 25 January; and
  2. honours examinations which do not take place before the end of the first semester, may take place no later than 15 July, and all examination results must be submitted to the Student Administration on or before 18 July.
  • whether a candidate will be admitted to a supplementary examination, provided that a supplementary examination is granted, only once in a maximum of two prescribed semester modules or once in one year module;
  • supplementary examinations (if granted) cover the same subject matter as was the case for the examinations;
  • NB: For the purpose of this provision, the phrase "not sit for an examination more than twice in the same subject" as it appears in General Regulation G.18.2, implies that a candidate may not be admitted to an examination in a module, including a supplementary examination, more than three times.
  • the manner in which research reports are prepared and examined in his department.

NB: Full details are published in each department's postgraduate information brochure, which is available from the head of department concerned. The minimum pass mark for a research report is 50%. The provisions regarding pass requirements for dissertations contained in General Regulation G.12.2 apply mutatis mutandis to research reports.

Subject to the provisions of General Regulation G.12.2.1.3, the subminimum required in subdivisions of modules is published in the study guides, which is available from the head of department concerned.

    In this information age a lot of data is captured every day and recorded in databases, but the wealth of this data is kept locked in the databases because relatively little mining is performed on this data. This module introduces you to data mining in terms of:
    • The data mining process - how do you mine data?
    • The data mining techniques - an overview of the data mining techniques that can be used;
    • Practical data mining experience - a practical project mining real industry data to find unknown patterns; and
    • Product overviews - product demonstrations by data mining   vendors.
