Welcome to the Department of Information Systems

download (25)Welcome to the webpage of the Department of Information Systems (IS). The IS department offers two undergraduate, three Masters, and two PhD degree programs. In addition, the department offers several certificate programs at the undergraduate level. Starting from Fall 2014, we have started a new Masters in Professional Studies (MPS) degree program in Health Information Technology.

Our academic programs are widely acclaimed for quality of instruction, reputation of the faculty, and student success.  As an example, the US News and World Report has most recently ranked our online MS program as one of the top 20 in the nation. Our academic programs, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels, are currently experiencing growth in student enrollments. In order to provide the best education to our students, we are continuously working on improving the curricula and course contents in all of our programs. The IS department is also increasing its faculty size. Our most recent faculty hires include Dr. Shimei Pan from IBM and Dr. Qian Zu from the Mayo Clinic.

Overall, we have nearly 1400 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in our programs who, with the help of our faculty members, study, design, develop, and evaluate information technologies to address the needs of a broad range of individuals and organizations. This makes our students true problem solvers and ideal employees for public and private sector organizations with significant IT requirements. Despite the current challenges in the economy, IT professionals are still high in demand throughout various industries. Welcome again and we look forward to an exciting academic year.
