The Business Information Systems Transfer curriculum will allow students to complete courses at Middlesex County College that will meet the first two years of the Bachelor of Science Degree, Information Systems Option, in several local four-year institutions such as Kean University, Montclair State University and New Jersey Institute of Technology. The students will complete 63-65 credits at Middlesex County College and the remaining credits at the transfer institution. The transfer will be seamless with no credit loss or duplication. Graduates will be able to:
- Design, develop, and implement information technology based solutions for business problems.
- Demonstrate proficiency in the underlying infrastructure of information systems and computer networks.
- Structure, collect, and analyze data to support business operations and strategic decision making.
- Identify business problems, frameworks for their solutions, and use appropriate problem solving techniques for business problems.
- Communicate effectively with various stakeholders in written and verbal forms.
- Demonstrate professionalism and ethical behavior.
The Computer Science Transfer curriculum is designed for students wishing to transfer to a four-year college. Since colleges have some differences in their programs, the Computer Science Transfer curriculum may not coincide with the exact curriculum of a particular school. For example, there might be differences in the introductory programming language adopted, as well as Science and Math requirements. Talk to your advisor to discuss the requirements of the particular colleges that you are considering attending. This curriculum has difficult Math and Science requirements, and is recommended for those students with strong Math and Science backgrounds.
The Computer Information Systems – General Option is recommended for those students wishing to enter the job market upon graduation from Middlesex County College. Many, but not all, of the courses in this degree program will transfer to upper division colleges. The curriculum includes courses in Programming Languages, Operating Systems, Database, and the Internet. For information about transferability of courses in this curriculum, see your advisor. This curriculum has less difficult Math requirements than the Computer Science Transfer curriculum, so students who are not strong in Math are encouraged to select this curriculum.
The Computer Information Systems – Network Administration and Support Option is recommended for those students wishing to enter the job market upon graduation from Middlesex County College. In particular, students graduating from this program will work in the Networking field. Students will be prepared to take some certification tests upon completion of this program. Some of the courses in this program may not transfer to an upper division college.
