The Computer Information Systems program at UIW offers Bachelor of Science degrees in both Computer Information Systems (CIS) and Cyber Security Systems (CSEC). The theoretical knowledge and experiential skills covered in both degree plans provide students a foundation for multiple career paths in these technical fields.
The CIS and CSEC majors share foundation and advanced courses in computer hardware, networks, telecommunications, operating systems, programming, website development, database systems, systems analysis, and management of technology and IT personnel. Career development courses include: Seminar, Internship, and Capstone or Practicum where students demonstrate expertise in a specific field by working for an outside organization.
As a CIS or CSEC graduate, you will be able to plan, design, construct, and explain the secure operations of computer systems and networks to both technical and non-technical audiences.
