About: CIS

The Siena Heights Computer and Information Systems Program is focused on preparing people for the real world rather than just theoretical concepts. We orient our classes such that material that students are learning is attractive to businesses.

The program will incorporate a lot of real world expertise and experience. Internships are important and are encouraged.

Software development is not necessarily sitting at a computer typing up code. A big part of it is sitting down with users to ensure that the application is going to do what the person wants. Siena’s program will work to develop that in its students.

Siena Heights' dedicated faculty who are practitioners in the field will prepare you for future challenges. All CIS classes are small in size, generally less than 20 students, and meet in a laboratory-style classroom where one-on-one discussion with the faculty is the norm. Your career prospects are strengthened by our on-the-job experiences and senior projects.
