Information Systems Major: Computers are an integral part of the modern world, and pervade science, business, entertainment and communications. Hardware and software continue to evolve rapidly: today's cell phones have more computing capacity than mainframes of the 1960s. The Computer Science and Information Systems majors prepare students to become active participants in this exciting and expanding field.
The Information Systems major, offered jointly with NJIT, takes a broader view than Computer Science, with training in the core technical areas, and then exposure to the applications of computers to business, telecommunications, data management and the World Wide Web. Students in this program are prepared for careers in business applications of computers and for graduate studies in Business or Information Systems.
