GVSU School of Computing and Information Systems Welcome to the GVSU School of Computing and Information Systems page!

The GVSU School of Computing and Information Systems offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in computer science and information systems.

Mission: The mission of the School of Computing & Information Systems is to provide the GVSU student community with the intellectual foundations and experiences necessary to use information technology effectively in their chosen careers. To enable students to attain this goal, the CIS faculty have two primary responsibilities. First, we will offer a solid conceptual foundation required for a career in information technology. Second, we will provide direct, experiential knowledge of the technology necessary to be a productive user/producer of information technology. To achieve these goals we: * Work continuously to keep our curriculum relevant to our mission. * Ensure that work-relevant experience is part of every class. * Establish and nurture industrial contacts. * Establish an integrated, supported co-op experience for CIS majors. * Provide all students, regardless of their major interests, fundamental * knowledge of computers and information processing.

A message from our Associate Dean!

Associate Dean Tim Born works from his remote office in the basement bedroom. “Hi there, PCEC students! Congratulations on completing 4 weeks of remote learning. I know this isn’t what you were expecting when the semester started, but the feedback I’ve heard from faculty is that you’ve been outstanding. Keep up the great work – just one more week to go! We’ll get through this together and our return in the fall will be sweeter than ever. Speaking of sweeter than ever, one of the benefits of working from home is that my 10-year old daughter has learned to make amazing scones. And no, I don’t nap in my office bed no matter what you may have heard!” #GVPositivity #GVSU #WorkLikeALaker
