CIS Career Pathways

The Computer and Information Systems program is designed around a core curriculum and three distinct options. The program's core provides a strong introduction to computer concepts, software applications, operating systems, networking and cybersecurity, microcomputer servicing, Internet, math, human relations and writing. To gain practical work-related experience, students also complete 99 hours of cooperative work experience in a related setting.

CIS students may elect to complete an option in one or more of three emphasis areas: Networking and Cybersecurity, Computer Aided Drafting (CAD), and Web Development. Students can also earn a general Associate of Applied Science in Computer Information Systems.

The design of many of the advanced-level applications, networking and cybersecurity and CAD courses in the CIS department prepare students for industry certification. Students are able to test for certification and assess their competence in their given emphasis.
