Computer Information Systems - Cybersecurity Option (CIS.CYS.AAS)

Associate in Applied Science

Business, Management, Marketing and Technology

Auburn Hills Campus

The Computer Information Systems (CIS) associate degrees are designed for students who need general education (e.g., communication, science, mathematics, fine arts, social science) combined with a solid foundation in the fundamental computer skills that are generally required to design, create, and test software, or analyze business system requirements and design solutions, or support and protect the operation of technology resources. These fundamental computer skills are commonly required by most four-year educational programs that offer the types of bachelor degrees most employers look for when hiring information technology professionals.  All CIS courses use current computer tools and place an emphasis on practical application to provide a relevant learning environment.
