Computer Information Systems
Welcome to the Computer Information Systems (CIS) program at the University of Houston-Clear
The program balances theoretical computer science knowledge with practical skills
in developing and administering information systems. While students take core computing
foundation courses such as data structures, they expose themselves to cutting-edge
technologies in Information systems development, Internet and web applications, mobile
computing, and network and systems administration. The CIS faculty gives students
hands-on experiences. They gather the most up-to-date resources to create specialized
laboratories. CIS students can use the Windows lab, the Solaris lab, the Systems Administration
lab, the computer security lab, and the capstone project labs. CIS alumni blend their
solid technical knowledge with practical, hands-on training. Their training qualifies
them for work in various technical and management positions developing, operating,
and maintaining computer information systems.
||The College of Science and Engineering (CSE) hosts the CIS program.We offer a Master
of Science and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems.
The Bachelor of Science is accredited by the ABET under the Information System curriculum.
The CIS program builds on a foundation of strong technical knowledge in computer science.
The program emphasizes areas related to computer information systems such as database
systems, Internet development, computer networking, Internet security, and software
development. It also reinforces a broad understanding of other disciplines related
to information systems, such as accounting, management, and communication.
