This program combines business and information technology subjects. It is designed to satisfy demand for students with a combination of technical and business training. Indeed, the major was designed through a process of consultation between business, government, and academic leaders. Related majors in Computer Science and in Management Information Systems are described in separate guides. The Information Systems major is oriented toward students interested in the design of new software systems for business and consumer needs. All of the 17-plus members of the Computer and Information Sciences department faculty hold doctorates. The research of the faculty falls into seven broad areas: artificial intelligence and natural language processing, networking, high performance computing systems, multimedia, bioinformatics, theory and algorithms, and computer algebra. These research areas are well reflected in the upper level course offerings. A degree in information systems opens the door to careers in information technology including data processing, e-business development, and marketing in a variety of industries and businesses. Graduates may expect to take jobs similar to those taken in recent years by Computer and Information Sciences majors who chose a business concentration. Delaware CIS graduates obtain jobs with major computer manufacturers and software development firms such as IBM, Microsoft, and SUN, and major corporations such as DuPont and MBNA.
