University learning through the CIS Department seeks to prepare alumni--whether in the Bioinformatics, Computer Science, Information Systems, or Software Engineering programs -- to achieve the following career and professional accomplishments.
As employable professionals, graduates are well prepared for employment or graduate work in their field, and to continue working in the chosen or related fields. As accountable professionals, the graduates are accountable for their professional roles, and as such, pursue, their profession in an ethical manner. This includes the responsibility for, or leadership in research/development projects or teams, aspects of major system components, or business development work. As competent problem solvers, the graduates apply current computing technology knowledge, skills, techniques and methods to develop effective solutions for problems, improve product, process and/or organizational elements, or to innovate. As selfless contributors, the graduates voluntarily give their time, talent, and/or money to their community, profession, church, and/or society.
