GVSU School of Computing and Information Systems

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.

GVSU Switzerland Exchange Program

CIS Summer Exchange Returns to Grand Valley

For the sixth year in a row, a group of Grand Valley computing students joined with students from the Zurich University of Applied Sciences in the Swiss-US Summer Exchange program. Students take part in two intense courses in Switzerland and in Allendale to learn the latest techniques of Data Science, and participate in cultural excursions. Both cohorts of students return to the Allendale campus to continue their coursework and visit Michigan landmarks, such as trading Alpine hikes for dune climbs. To find out more about taking part in future exchanges, contact Dr. Paul Leidig at [email protected].

GVSU CIS students travel to Winterthur, Switzerland to study with Swiss students and have the experience of a lifetime!
