The Department of Computer Information Systems (CIS) intends to produce skilled
computer professionals with a broad understanding in developing and maintaining
information systems, i.e. how to collect, classify, store, retrieve, disseminate
any type of information, develop, operate infrastructure for information systems.
The CIS graduate will be able to understand and implement computer systems on different
platforms, and will be prepared to develop applications in areas, such as, database-systems
and database programming, data warehousing, web technologies and multimedia technologies,
computer animation, and security.
Since CIS professionals must also understand organizations and the functions within
organizations, such as (accounting, finance, marketing, operations, human resources,
and so forth), therefore the department offers some courses like accounting and
CIS is actually a broad, interdisciplinary field, incorporating not only the aspects
of computer science, but often diverse fields such as commerce, communications,
law, library science, management, mathematics, and the social sciences.
