Department of Computer Information Systems and Technology

The Department of Computer Information Systems and Technology (CIST) offers Bachelor’s degrees in three major areas: Computer Information Systems (CIS), Engineering Technology (ET), and Technology. A two-year Associate's degree in Industrial Maintenance (IM) and Automotive Engineering Technology are also available. While the CIS, ET, and IM programs are designed for traditional on-campus students, the BS in Technology is specifically designed for transfer students with significant technical credit from a community college, trade school, or military service and capitalizes on skills already acquired. The BS in Technology is also available completely online. The CIST department also offers certificates in Automotive Technician (Short Certificate) and Welding (Non-Degree Certificate).
