The Bachelor of Computer Information Systems blends computer science abilities with the skills specific to another discipline to prepare you to solve problems in that discipline. Examples include computing with a business focus like management information systems, or computing with a natural science focus like computational physics.

Begin with a set of introductory courses that work together to provide a firm foundation in computer science. These introductory courses include weekly labs that incorporate state-of-the-art software development techniques, like object-oriented programming in Java, to create solutions for real-world problems. A unique laboratory model encourages creativity by providing ample opportunity for constructive feedback on your efforts. After completing the introductory core, you will be prepared to work independently within a well-structured design framework—in the classroom or on the job. Build upon this foundation to gain a technical understanding in the latest fields of computer science including algorithms, machine learning, data communications, application development, parallel and distributing computing, data security, and more.
