Computer Information Systems (B.S.)
Dive into the use of computers as sophisticated problem-solving tools. Pursue an interdisciplinary course of study that combines a solid foundation in computer science with a focus in another discipline.
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 of the latest fields of computer science including algorithms, machine learning, data communications, application development, parallel and distributing computing, data security, and more.
