Course Aims

The course is designed to help students to discover, examine and explain the potential benefits and limitations of managing and delivering public services within an environment characterised by increasingly sophisticated information, communication & technology (ICT). To prepare students to do innovative works at the public sector in the information age, they can design, create and integrate different e-government strategies by integrating them with the latest e-governance approaches, such as Customer Relationships Management, Interoperability Framework, Web 2.0 and Cloud Computing.  As a future public administrator, student should also recognise the social concerns, such as digital divide, privacy and data security when e-services are widely available.  They are able to critically evaluate to what extent they will affect the performance of the e-government.
