Build the Technology that Improves Lives

Computer Information Systems (CIS) specialists design, build, and implement the software, mobile, and web application and database systems that are found in organizations of every size and purpose. CIS professionals are highly valued and relied upon throughout all levels of organization. The skills they utilize--along with the systems they create and maintain--are increasingly critical to an entire operation's productivity and profitability.

A DMACC CIS degree provides an important framework in the computer and information management concepts and skills needed to succeed in the workplace. Students become fluent in such technologies as Java, C#, C++, SQL (Structured Query Language), and Oracle, as well as a variety of web programming languages. Game design coursework is also available.
