Computer Information Science

 

Undergraduate Image 043Welcome to the eye of the hurricane! In a world going through dramatic change, the field of Computer Information Science (CIS) stands at the center of the turmoil, designing, creating, and maintaining the technology and the systems that are central to the way the world works. Whether it's e-commerce, information retrieval via the World Wide Web, financial transactions at a local bank, or rockets blasting into space, computer scientists and information specialists are responsible for the hardware and software systems used for these endeavors. And although the changes in the world seem chaotic, there is calm at the center of the turmoil where the computer scientist and information specialist proceed methodically using the tools of industry, logic and mathematics and an evolving engineering discipline to shape this new world being built.

 

At Clarion, we have faculty who have many years of real-world experience and many years of real world experience with students. Students develop software for a variety of computing platforms including mainframe and personal computers and the networks linking them together. Software experience includes C#, Java and others. At Clarion, the CIS student gets the full attention of the faculty who are in the classroom and in the labs helping the students learn. There is a dramatic need for people to come join the ranks of the professionals that are quietly changing the world. If you are bright, energetic, and persistent and love to solve difficult problems in creative ways, come join us!
