Student Learning Outcomes
1. Apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the discipline
2. Analyze/decompose/model a problem, and identify and define computing requirements appropriate to its solution
3. Design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs
4. Function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal and understand group dynamics
5. Communicate effectively with a range of audiences
6. Analyze the local and global impact of computing on individuals, organizations, and society
7. Use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice
8. Apply mathematical foundations, algorithmic principles, and systems analysis in the modeling and design of computer-based systems in a way that demonstrates comprehensions of the tradeoffs involved in design choices
9. Apply the methods and tools of project management in the construction of systems of varying complexity
III. SIS Sequences (24 Credits)
All SIS students must complete both a Short Technical Sequence (6 credits) and a Focus Area (18 credits).
The Technical Sequence requires a two-course sequence in one of several applied-technology areas: Database Management, Networking, Security Management, Systems, and Web Design and Management.
The Focus Area requires 18 credits in a specific domain, which represents a potential area for the application of a student’s information management and computing skills.
Students may not count the same course towards both their Technical Sequence and their Focus Area.
For details of the Technical Sequence and the Focus Areas, please consult with the SIS Program Directors.
