We have developed three specializations—as well as one general specialization—with input from industry leaders to ensure you are gaining the knowledge and skills that employers need.

The information systems specialization enables students to use object-oriented design tools to design, build, implement, and test Web-based information systems.

  • INFSCI 1017 Implementation of Information Systems
  • INFSCI 1025 Design of Information Systems
  • INFSCI 1068 Geographic Information Systems
  • INFSCI 1026 Management of Information Systems
  • INFSCI 1092 Special Topics Systems

The user-centered design specialization provides the visual and human-computer interaction skills needed to design and build prototypes of information systems interfaces as well as to perform usability testing of these systems.

  • INFSCI 1014 Graphics
  • INFSCI 1052 User-Centered Design
  • INFSCI 1059 Web Programming
  • INFSCI 1092 Special Topics: Systems

The networks and security specialization offers skills needed to design, build, and test LANS, WANS, Wireless, Internet, and Web-based networks.

  • INFSCI 1070 Introduction to Telcom and Networks
  • INFSCI 1071 Applications of Networks
  • INFSCI 1072 Introduction to Wireless Networks
  • INFSCI 1073 Application Development for Mobile Devices
  • INFSCI 1074 Computer Security
  • INFSCI 1075 Network Security
  • INFSCI 1079 Computer Networking Laboratory
  • INFSCI 1092 Special Topics: Systems

The self-designed specialization allows you to create the skill set, through your course selections, that you need for the career that you want to pursue. Combine elements from each of the specializations above, or think about adding courses that will broaden your area of expertise.
