SCHOOL OF COMPUTER AND INFORMATION SCIENCES

The impact of the computer upon business and society has been phenomenal. One result of this continuing dynamic technological growth has been a significant demand for professionals. The use of computers has become indispensable in science, engineering, management, education and other professions. Many believe that in the near future information processing will become the nation's largest industry and that its disciplines will be centrally important to society.

The faculty of the School of Computer and Information Sciences provide a diverse spectrum of expertise and experience. Students are therefore provided a unique blend of theory, current practice, and state-of-the-art technology.

The computer laboratories house PC's, which are networked to Georgia Southwestern State University's in-house servers as well as to the University System's Computer Network. The full range of computer equipment, from PC's to large servers, is taught in the classroom and is accessed by students in the laboratory.

The GSW-I-TECHCenter was created based within the School of Computer and Information Sciences in Fall 2000. The primary mission of the Center is to provide students with the real-world projects and opportunities for research and internships. There were more than 15 projects completed in the last two years, among them were web based applications, database development, e-commerce application testing, etc.

The School of Computer and Information Sciences offers Master of Science in Computer Science degree program and Bachelor of Science degree programs in computer information systems and computer science.

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology provides instruction and training for persons wishing to enter the exciting world of Information Technology. Today, employment opportunities abound for the man or woman who possesses the creative energy, the problem-solving ability, and the technical knowledge and skills to provide information services in a wide variety of organizational settings. The graduate of this program can expect initial employment as a network administrator, a database administrator, a Webmaster, and, with some experience, can move into such high-demanding occupations as information systems analyst, or information systems manager. The program provides the flexibility to meet almost any career aspirations in computer infrastructure set up and information processing.
