As more organizations install and employ computer networks, a need has developed for the “resident expert” to administer the system, install software, establish security, and train others. As a graduate of the computer information systems (CIS) program, you will be well positioned to serve that need with a foundation in programming, databases, and networking.
A laptop computer is required for students entering the computer information systems program. Laptop specifications are available at www.alfredstate.edu/required-laptops.
Alfred State computer information systems graduates may enter directly into either the cyber security BTech, information technology: applications software development BTech, information technology: network administration BTech, information technology: web development BTech, the interdisciplinary studies BTech, or technology management BBA degree program.
To facilitate the transfer of graduates choosing to continue their education at the baccalaureate level, students are encouraged to make their intentions known to their academic adviser during their freshman year. Through the careful use of elective courses, students can realize excellent transfer credit.
Transfer into the information technology programs: network administration, web development, and applications software development will place them at junior status.
Employment and continuing education rate of 100 percent – 22 percent are employed; 78 percent continued their education.
