The Computer Information Systems degree, offered in Victoria and Katy, is right for those students who know that they want to work in a business organization in a programming or non-programming, technical or management position including:

  • Systems Analyst
  • MIS Technical Staff/Manager
  • Application Programmer
  • Software Engineer
  • Database Programmer/Administrator
  • Software Project Manager/Leader
  • Information Systems Specialist
  • Network/Telecommunications Specialist
  • Help Desk
  • Web developer

These students must have an interest in computers and business, and should want to pursue an interdisciplinary degree combining the two. There is great demand for people who know both computers and business. Want to learn more? Request information on the programs that interest you.

Some of these students are looking for, mathematically speaking, a non-calculus based alternative ladder to a job and career in computing. On the other hand, we also have students in this concentration with calculus and beyond. Some of these students want to pursue graduate studies in Computer Information Systems, MIS, or a related area.

The lower division courses required include:

  • College Algebra and Finite Math
  • Business Calculus
  • Accounting I and II
  • nine hours of programming selected from Pascal, C/C++, COBOL, Java, or Visual Basic with at least 3 hours in C/C++ Programming (preferably 6)

The upper division courses will come mainly from:

  • Computer Science
  • Information Systems
  • Business
  • Mathematics

The department is a member of the Microsoft Academic Alliance and the Oracle Academic Initiative programs. This gives students opportunities to work with the computer industry standards in software development.

The University of Houston-Victoria also offers a BAAS concentration in Computer Information Systems as well as a Masters of Science in Computer Information Systems.
