COMPUTER INFORMATION SYSTEMS (CIS)

Major Overview
The Computer Information Systems program prepares graduates to obtain employment and become productive IT support personnel in a business-oriented systems environment. Working behind the scenes, computer information systems specialists and CIS management professionals design, build, and implement software solutions that power the economy. The driving force in every business, not-for-profit and government agency, computing technology helps maintain corporate leadership in the global economy. As a result demand for computer information systems professions extends to virtually every industry, and salaries in the field are substantially higher than the national average.
