What is computer information systems?
Computing drives innovation in all economic sectors, from business to entertainment to manufacturing and scientific research—and computer information systems encompasses all aspects of information technology (IT) in this wide range of industries. This field examines not just how computing technology works, but also how IT solutions are designed, managed and applied to address complex problems in the workplace, in everybody's daily life or in society at large. A computer information systems degree builds the practical technical skills for a successful IT career or further education in a professional graduate program.
