A survey of computing and technology-related issues, including hardware, software, operating systems, file management, networks, electronic communication, Internet research, technology in society, and online security, privacy, and ethics.  Also provides a survey of and hands-on experience with word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, database, Web browser, and e-mail software. Recommended: Keyboarding skills or instructor's permission.

2703 -- Visual Basic Programming -- 3 credit hours
Visual Basic language will be used to provide experience in planning and creating interactive Windows applications with an emphasis on Graphical User Interface design skills.  Prerequisite: MATH 1013.  Course rotation: Fall.

2713 -- Introduction to Computational Science -- 3 credit hours
Presents an introduction to the theory and application of computer programming.  Basic control structures and object-oriented constructs are explored.  Also listed as MATH 2713 and PHYS 2713.  Prerequisite: MATH 1013.  Course rotation: Spring.

3003 -- Web Design -- 3 credit hours
Introduction to basic Web design and creation principles using Web authoring software, HTML, JavaScript, and Cascading Style Sheets.  Course rotation: Fall.

3013 -- Web Applications I -- 3 credit hours
Introduction to Web application development using ColdFusion.  Points of emphasis include working with ColdFusion tags and functions, dynamic Web pages, interacting with databases, forms, and various methods of data presentation.  Prerequisite: CIS 3003.  Course rotation: Spring.

3023 -- Database Applications I -- 3 credit hours
Introduction to relational databases using Oracle.  Students will learn database concepts and how to create database objects such as tables, indexes, views, etc.  Creation of databases objects will be covered from the perspective of system design and will address such topics as normalization and referential integrity.  The student will become proficient in Structured Query Language (SQL) and will be able to insert, update, delete, and retrieve data from tables.  Prerequisite: CIS 3003.  Course rotation: Spring.

4013 -- Web Applications II -- 3 credit hours
Focuses on web application framework and advanced ColdFusion techniques.  Topics covered include ColdFusion components, user defined functions, advanced database techniques, user interface, and banded report writing.  Prepares the student for the Capstone Project, where the student will build a functional web application which includes the design of the database and user interface components.  Prerequisites: CIS 3013.  Course rotation: Fall.

4023 -- Database Applications II -- 3 credit hours
Focuses on Oracle's PL/SQL language.  Topics covered include cursors, exception handling, native and user defined procedures and functions, packages, privileges, database triggers, and dynamic SQL.  The student will acquire a strong understanding of the PL/SQL language, its uses and value to system architecture.  Prepares the student for the Capstone Project, where the student will build a functional web application which includes the design of the database and user interface components.  Prerequisite: CIS 3023.  Course rotation: Fall.

4033 -- Capstone Project -- 3 credit hours
Culmination of the concepts learned in the CIS program.  The student will be provided specifications for a project which requires the development of the database infrastructure and user interface of a dynamic, Web-based application.  As part of the database component, the project will emphasize design, normalization of tables, data integrity, user defined functions and procedures.  User input and interaction with the database (including the insertion, editing, and deleting of records) and reporting will comprise the back end and user interface aspect of the project.  Prerequisites: CIS 4013 and CIS 4023.  Course rotation: Spring.
