Computer and Information Sciences



be repeated for credit if content is different. Topics

may include: Systems Programming (e.g. design and

construction of programming language translators,

compilers, and interpreters), Operating System

Internals, or Advanced Computer Graphics (such

as interactive graphics, screen displays, graphical

techniques, and software).

MIS312 Linux & Unix (3)

This course provides an introduction to Linux &

Unix, with an emphasis on use of the BASH shell

command line and BASH shell programming.

MIS320 IS Applications (3)

This course teaches computer applications that are

accepted as standard in the business world. Emphasis

is placed on the practical implementation of end

user software in a business environment. The use

of spreadsheet and database programs to support

business processes will be studied in depth. Excel and

Access will be used in this class.

Prerequisite: CS100.

MIS328 COBOL Programming (3)

This course provides training in COBOL (Common

Business Oriented Language); the most widely

used programming language in the business world.

Prerequisite: CS111.

MIS338 Data & File Processing (3)

An introduction to the concepts of information

organization, methods of representing information

both internally and externally. The course begins with

a review of basic structures (stacks, queues, linked

lists, and trees) and moves through more complex

data structures into the processing of files (sequential,

relative, indexed sequential, and others). Projects

are completed in one or more high-level languages.

Prerequisite: CS111.

MIS348 Assembly Language Programming (3)

Teaches programming in assembly language,

including its relationship to computer architecture,

macros, segmentation, memory management,

linkages, etc.

Prerequisite: CS111.

MIS358 Introduction to Web Graphics (3)

Introduces computer graphics from a designer’s

perspective, as well as software tools for manipulating

them. Web graphics are covered in detail, including

appropriate processes and methods.

MIS368 Introduction to 3D Graphics &

Animation (3)

This course introduces students to the world of three-

dimensional (3D) computer graphics and animation.

The software package that is used in the class is

Maya, the most widely used 3D content creation

and animation software. Topics include curves and

polygons, surfaces, lights, cameras, rendering, effects,

and more. Same as C367.

MIS411 Systems Analysis & Design (3)

Introduces the concepts of the systems development

life cycle. Analyzes various examples, such as

traditional, CASE, prototyping, and RAD. Discusses

file and database structures and processing practices.

Presents techniques and tools for systemspecifications

and documentation.

Prerequisite: CS111.

May be taken

concurrently with CS301, but not before.

MIS432 Database Management Systems (3)

Design, implementation, and management of

business database systems. Includes data analysis,

design, and normalization.

Prerequisites: CS301.

MIS438 Advanced Database Application

Development (3)

This course examines advanced concepts used

to develop information systems. Topics include

advanced database programming, embedded

database commands in high-level languages, and

expert system designed user interface concepts.

Pertinent current topics used in information system

development are also included.

Prerequisite: MIS432.

MIS441 Web Site Administration (3)

Students will learn to install, maintain, and administer

a web site. Integral to this class is the tight cohesion

of theory (lecture) and praxis (hands-on labs).

Subject matter will include TCP/IP; security;

intranets; designing, implementing, and administering

databases; search services; firewalls and proxy servers;


Prerequisite: CS301.

MIS468 Advanced 3D Graphics and Animation


This course continues the study of 3D graphics
