Computer Information Systems

The Computer Information Systems (CIS) program emphasizes the ways in which information technologies can best be used in a business or organization. Students can work in a project-oriented environment in courses such as Systems Analysis, Software Engineering, Human-Computer Interaction, and Database Theory and Design. CIS students learn about the relationship between information systems and the organizations they serve, including the design and support of computer-based systems. CIS helps students learn not only how technology works in the big picture, but also how to think through what type of technology should be used to solve a specific business problem. This major is an important link to today’s growing technology systems, a crucial element in any business or organization. The major requires students to take foundation courses that use Java and C++. Other supporting courses for the CIS major are in business, economics, statistics, and calculus. Senior year students design a Capstone course where they research, design, and implement their own unique project.
