BS in Information Systems
Bachelor of Science in Information Systems (BSIS) emphasizes the efficient design and use of information and information technologies. The BSIS curriculum has no single application focus. It is directed to the art and science of managing information in all application environments. Students learn how to determine information needs, design appropriate information systems, manage those systems, and measure the systems performance. The emphasis is on the users of computers, and on building professional-level information system skills.
The BSIS program
- Provides the skills and knowledge needed to design, create, manage, and effectively use modern information systems
- Meets the growing demand for individuals skilled in the development of information systems and the management of information
- Often leads to Network Systems and Data Communications Analyst, Network and Computer Systems Administrator, and/or Database Administrator positions - some of the fastest-growing careers in the U.S.
- Five-year program with three six-month periods of Co-op employment or four-year program with one six-month Co-op
