The Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems is a degree designed to prepare students for employment in an Information Technology department of an organization. Program skills begin with strong computer programming foundations and move students toward the most advanced concentrations.
There are three concentrations from which students can choose: web based applications, database systems management, and network systems administration.
The web based applications concentration and the database systems management concentration, each concentration prepare students to design, implement, and manage systems. The former prepares students for working with web based communications systems and the latter prepares them for working with database management systems.
The network systems administration concentration prepares students to build, install, troubleshoot, and administer local area networks from the foundation up.
The curriculum includes a senior internship project where students will use and apply their learned skills to solve a computer-information-systems problem in a real-world situation.
The degree prepares students with a solid background in mathematics (discrete structures) and communications (technical writing). In addition, graduates leave the program with skills to work independently as well as skills to work collaboratively with diverse populations of staff, supervisors, and customers.
