Where Will Your Creativity Take You?
Information Systems is a field that thrives on creative thinkers with novel and innovative solutions in software development and systems analysis. The Information Systems program is for students interested in the areas of system development and design and user interaction and interface. Starting in the second year, the students begin to interleave with the core computer science courses other courses geared toward managing computerized systems in a business setting including attention to customer-client interaction.
In additional to technical knowledge, required skills include creativity and problem-solving, along with interpersonal and business skills. The student of Information Systems masters many fields in creating a multidisciplinary prowess.
The Stevens Difference
The Information Systems program at Stevens addresses this need with a broad-based curriculum that provides not only theory and technical skills, but also a strong base in mathematics and algorithmic problem-solving, design, coding, and testing. A two-semester capstone project in the senior year allows students to apply their learning to create useful, well-engineered software products. Many of these projects are sponsored by industry and government agencies, such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Siemens, and Citicorp. Students leave with industry experience on top of their strong academic preparation. After all, Stevens is dedicated to training the leaders and innovators of tomorrow. Stevens Information Systems program is one of only several in the country to require a two-semester senior design project course that emphasizes the skills learned over the course of study.
