The members of the Information System Group offer a set of courses related with the topics and research lines of the group. The courses IIC2xxx are bachelor courses, whereas IIC3xxx are end-of-bachelor, master, or doctorate courses. The courses are in Spanish, although the reading material may be in English. Information about the courses can be found in http://buscacursos.uc.cl/.
IIC2733 – Modelo de Procesos (Process Models)
The course focuses on teaching the students about the business processes in the companies, providing both a general overview and detailed knowledge on how the things are done. The business processes in a company must be a faithful representation of the company strategy and are the base of the technological infrastructure. Therefore, it is crucial to understand the process layer. A change in the process has a direct impact in the strategic and operational performance indicators of the systems, the data bases, and the networks.
IIC2713 – Sistemas de Información (Information Systems)
This courses focuses on the relation between the information systems and the organizacional strategy, and in particular, the role played by the information technologies to provided value in the organizations. The course topics include the life-cycle, specific typologies, and performance evaluation techniques of the information systems.
The course is designed using student-centric teaching methodologies, where the student develops the competences defined in the course objectives.
IIC3757 – Minería de Procesos (Process Mining)
Faster visits to the hospital, fraud detection in banking, bottleneck analysis in a company, … all that can be achieved with Process Mining. This course is an introduction to Process Mining, a discipline that aims to discover, monitor and improve real end-to-end processes (i.e., not assumed processes) by extracting knowledge from event data readily available in today’s information systems. Process mining techniques have been applied to processes in a wide range of real-life contexts: health-care, public administration, education, airports, banking, logistic, to mention just a few examples. This course presents the state-of-the-art techniques, methodologies, algorithms, and software, in the field, and brings to the student the opportunity to apply Process Mining in a real context.
IIC3562 – Taller de Groupware (CSCW / Collaborative systems and social computing)
Collaborative systems allow groups of people with a common goal to work together. Nowadays, computers are not only used to work, but also to complement (and sometimes replace) social interaction. This course aims to provide elements that help students understand how people work and socialize through collaborative systems, by providing an overview of the history of the CSCW research area, as well as tools that allow students to understand groups of people (e.g. ethnography, qualitative methods), build systems to support them, and evaluate how well the systems support group work. This course is research-oriented and students are expected to read current research in the area and use the contents of the course to develop a project and write a research paper.
