The master of science in computer and information systems (MSCIS) combines technology and business skills, enabling students to apply their experiences to further their professional goals.
Students enhance their learning by completing real-world projects which benefit the local and global communities. The enhanced CIS core curriculum involves project management, software development, numeric methods, and information systems security.
The program offers students flexibility in study within the following specialty tracks:
With approval, MSCIS students may design an individualized track combining computer science, business, bioinformatics, Geographical Information Systems (certificate option also available) or other related classes.
The MSCIS is entirely course-based study -- a thesis or project is optional. Full or part-time (evening) study is available. Students with sufficient background can complete the program in one-and-a-half years of full time study or three years of part-time study.
The MSCIS program is designed to benefit new students looking to enter the information systems (IS) field, as well as current IS professionals looking to expand their knowledge and expertise.
