BSc Programs in Technology Studies Information Systems

Many students who are interested in computer technology pursue a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Information Systems (IS). As the use of digital information technology continues to grow, graduates of this program continue to command significant salaries and stay in high demand.

What is a BSc in Information Systems? A BSc in Information Systems enables students to understand the complexities of wide-area data storage, distribution, and security. Program participants learn about how to design databases, implement the hardware to support the databases, and connect the databases to front-end systems, the user interfaces to the customer.

An expert in information systems is essential to any business that stores data. This can include businesses that maintain and distribute digital media, online booksellers that must track customers and orders, and law offices that must maintain sensitive legal information. IS graduates stay in demand for a wide range of companies. Their positions are business-critical.

Costs for the program vary widely by institution. Students can expect to pay tuition, lab fees, and the purchase price of a laptop. The program itself generally last three to five years.

Fresh graduates often choose to begin their careers in the IT (information technology) department of a large corporation. They often cut their teeth on training programs where they monitor and debug large databases. By diagnosing bottlenecks, upgrading information control software, and maintaining physical connections, they get a deep knowledge of their expertise. Other newly-minted graduates start in a small company and design and maintain the company database themselves. After several years, seasoned graduates are ready to architect new systems. They will specify the storage, data speed, cost, and security requirements for an enterprise operation. In this capacity, they may lead the IT departments of their company, or they may serve as consultants for companies setting up an information system.
