Computer Information Systems
CIS offers associate and baccalaureate programs that introduce students to basic computing concepts while allowing them to develop the basic skills required to begin a career. Courses start the student along the path for professional certifications. There are options, minors, and certificates available. CIS courses are taught in cutting edge computer labs so students can learn and practice skills.
The College of Applied Science and Technology recently changed the name of the baccalaureate in Industrial Computer Applications to Specialized IT Applications. The degree, created in conjunction with Innovation Alliance partner Lorain County Community College, is designed to meet industry needs that were identified in a recent survey. The option will prepare individuals to manage a technical lab environment in a specific field, such as health care or manufacturing. Contact an adivsor for more information.
The CIS program offers high level training for computer programmers and microcomputer application specialists. Schedules offer a range of day, evening and weekend classes.
Graduates of the AAB/BS CIS program are expected to qualify for such positions as programmer trainees, programmer/analysts, software developers, computer operators, or network specialists in business, industry and government organizations.
