Computer Science

CSCI-A110 Intro. to Computers and Computing (3 cr)

No computing experience assumed. How computers work, word processing, spreadsheets, file management, web browsing, etc. Emphasis on problem solving techniques. Lecture and laboratory. Credit given for only one of A106, A110 or Business K201.

  • Offered every semester.
  • Prerequisite: One year of high school algebra or equivalent.

CSCI-C243 Introduction to Data Structures (3 cr)

Introduction to data structure concepts and common applications. Structures to be discussed include strings, lists, queues, stacks, graphs, trees, sequential files, random files, and indexed sequential files. Practical applications and algorithms are stressed. Offered fall semesters.

  • Offered fall semesters.
  • Prerequisite: C202 or INFO-I211.

Integrated Information Management

IIM-I300 Foundations and Principles of MIS (3 cr)

Introduction to concepts of management information systems. Techniques for information sharing. Discussion of hardware and software standards. Supporting end users. Using microcomputers as workstations. Related ethical issues. Offered fall, spring, and summer II semesters.

  • Offered every semester.
  • Prerequisite: BUS-W100, CSCI-A110, or INFO-I101

IIM-I380 Data Communications in MIS (3 cr)

Various communications media, protocols and standards used for integrating information among applications and offices including: cabling systems, local-area networks, wide-area networks, file servers, client-based systems, and multi-user systems. Evaluation and selection of hardware and software. Skills, tools, and techniques for managing a networked integrated environment. Offered summer II (10 weeks), odd years.

  • Offered fall semesters.
  • Prerequisite: I300.

Computer Systems

BUS-P330 Project Management (3 cr)

The course focuses on project management techniques. Topics that will be covered in the course include project scope, work breakdown structure, project risk and uncertainty, project scheduling, project budgets, and resource allocation. Simulations will also be used to enhance student learning of project management techniques.

  • Offered occasionally
  • No prerequisites

BUS-S310 Systems Analysis & Design (3 cr)

Analysis of an organization and the subsequent design of computer systems to meet business requirements are at the heart of the computer information systems (CIS) field. Course is the first in a two-course sequence with S410 that addresses the multi-phased process for developing information systems. Courses follow the systems development life cycle, although alternative methodologies are also covered. This first course covers the phases from information systems planning through the specification of structured system requirements in functional form (i.e., logical system design) and concentrates on methods, techniques, and tools used to determine information requirements and to document these requirements in a thorough and unambiguous form. Also introduces computer-aided software engineering (CASE) technology. Students learn the discipline of systems analysis and logical design through a hypothetical case situation.

  • Offered fall semesters.
  • Pre or Corequisite: Programming Class/Experience, CSCI-A 110 or INFO-I 101

BUS-S430 E-Commerce (3 cr)

An overview of electronic commerce applications in the retail, manufacturing, government, and health sectors. Applications will illustrate business-to-consumer, business-to-business, and intra-organizational electronic commerce in physical as well as digital products. Different business models underlying these electronic commerce applications will be highlighted and discussed from both operational and strategic perspectives.

  • Offered spring semesters.
  • Prerequisite: IIM-I300, CSCI-A110 or INFO-I101, or consent of instructor
