About Us

Welcome to the IU Northwest Department of Computer Information Systems

The Department of Computer Information Systems (CIS) offers several degrees for those individuals interested in employment in the Information Technology field.  The CIS degrees are designed to provide students with a foundation in computer skills along with a strong theoretical base. This foundation enables graduates to enter the job market as programmer/analysts or information systems analysts.

Program Highlights

CIS students work with state-of-the-art software packages, and all students have access to IU Northwest’s network of personal computer workstations and online resources, including a networking lab which educates students on hardware requirements and the latest trends in network systems administration.  CIS students also have access to free or greatly discounted software packages through IUWare and the campus bookstore. 

The CIS faculty has a wide range of experience and expertise.  All associate faculty members are currently employed or self-employed in the field of Information Technology (IT).  Additionally, all full-time faculty members have past work experience in IT-related fields such as computer graphics, computer networking systems, office systems, computer security, computer programming, systems development, and database modeling and design. 

The CIS program offers both day and evening classes, and a wide variety of classes are available online.  The CIS program also offers classes that meet one night per week for three hours in order to help students obtain the widest variety of scheduling options.

Career Opportunities

Recent advances in computer technology, including the growth of Internet services, networks, and the development of sophisticated database tools, provide new employment opportunities in the 21st century.  CIS graduates typically find employment as systems and database analysts, network administrators, and web developers.
