The Computer Information Systems (CIS) Program offers the opportunity for students to develop knowledge and skills in analysis and design of information systems, database development, software development, and networking. This program prepares students for professional careers in the rapidly changing field of computer information systems. Students develop skills in communication, teamwork and leadership which are vital to their professional careers.

The explosive growth of information technology, and in particular, cloud computing, has increased the dependence of individuals and organizations on the data and information stored on network storage devices and communicated over networks. This, in turn, has led to extremely high demand for professionals in computer and cybersecurity technologies.

The Cybersecurity concentration provides the unique opportunity for students in CIS to develop knowledge and skills in computer and network security, data encryption and decryption, cybersecurity, and ethical hacking. This concentration prepares students for professional careers in the rapidly changing fields of information technology, networking and cybersecurity.
