Computer Information Systems

An In-Demand Career Path

Organizations throughout the world depend on technology to streamline functions, decrease costs and communicate with their customers—and the demand for information technology professionals is growing fast. Wentworth’s Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems (CIS) program offers an interdisciplinary education that prepares students to function successfully at the intersection of business and technology.

A Broad and Focused Curriculum

Our curriculum includes courses in computer science, business management, math, science, humanities and social sciences. Four open electives give you the option to earn a concentration in business management (such as management or finance), computer science (such as databases or software) or an area more suited to your professional goals.

You’ll gain a solid background in the analysis, design, development, deployment and administration of computer-based information systems within a business management context. You’ll complement your business acumen with strong problem-solving skills and technical abilities in databases, systems analysis and design, business processes, organizational behavior, networking and telecommunications, and project management.

A Full Range of Skills

As a Wentworth CIS graduate, you will enter the work world with the broad range of abilities you need to hit the ground running in your information technology career. You’ll be prepared to use your creativity and your analytical skills to design and manage computer systems that improve productivity, communication, efficiency and your company’s bottom line.
