The TimeSaver CIS major combines classes from both the Computer Science and Business Departments and prepares students for careers in business computing. Differing from the traditional computer science and business degrees, the CIS major emphasizes a hands-on, practical approach to using computers in diverse business environments. A CIS major also provides the necessary background for graduate study in computer information systems.
TimeSaver CIS students gain insight and direction from professors with diverse computing experiences and advanced computer science degrees. Small classes and faculty commitment allow students to interact frequently and at length with this helpful and knowledgeable team of educators.
The Computer Science Department is guided by a Computer Advisory Board consisting of computing professionals who guide the department in reviewing trends in computing, suggesting enhancements to the curriculum, and advising students about careers, job skills and placement. Students frequently accept high-paying positions months before graduation.
