Computer Science Technology: Curriculum

You can choose from one of two concentrations: computer information systems (CIS) or computer science. Both of the curriculums offers you a strong blend of theoretical and practical concepts in electrical engineering technology, software engineering technology, hardware engineering technology, mathematics, computer science, natural science and general education.

While computer science is the study of the principles used in the design and development of computer systems, CIS focuses on the technologies or tools that can provide organizations with the information they need to achieve their goals.
