CIS Programs

Computer Information Systems (CIS)

Perhaps no other field is as vital to every other field as information technology is to, well, … just about everything involving our daily existence. So not surprisingly, information technology is one of the strongest fields, no matter where you live or plan to work. The field encompasses high-demand and well-paid positions in software engineering, web design and development, cybersecurity, networking, systems analysis, system support, data management and … did we leave any out? Probably.

The Computer Information Systems program at Oakland Community College offers high-quality degrees, certificates and courses in these high-demand areas, all designed to meet the needs of students regardless of their status.

    Oakland Community College has a program to match your plan.

    The OCC Computer Information Systems program has computer lab facilities at the each campus. Each lab is equipped with the software needed to complete CIS coursework. Paraprofessionals are available in each lab to answer questions about hardware and software. Classes are small, and teachers have the time and the resources to help you hone your skills. Those skills, in turn, will set you on a solid course for the future … because technology will determine the future.

    The Computer Information Systems (CIS) discipline at Oakland Community College offers high quality degrees, certificates, and courses in each of these high demand areas. Every CIS course and program has been designed to consider the needs of students who:

    • Have no post-secondary degree and are looking to earn a CIS certificate or CIS associate degree to directly enter the job market;
    • Are looking to complete the first two years of college at OCC and transfer to a computer science program at a four-year university;
    • Currently have a bachelor degree in another field and are looking to earn a CIS certificate at OCC to move into a career in information technology; or
    • Are currently employed in information technology and are looking to enhance their skill set with our cutting-edge courses.
