Computer & Information Science
Arkansas Tech University's Computer and Information Science program is designed to
provide students with the fundamental knowledge and skills required to initiate and
maintain a successful career in the information systems field. All students in our
program are exposed to a variety of hardware platforms and programming languages.
Hands-on experience in the design and implementation of a complete information systems
project is attained in the student's senior year.
The mission of the Department of Computer and Information Science is to produce men
and women who can assess, develop, and maintain business and scientific computing
systems, and who are capable of continued learning and ethical practice in computing.
To achieve this mission the department provides a professional environment that introduces
students to relevant computing concepts, systems, and methodologies through a curriculum
that effectively blends theory with practice.
There Are Three Critical Components To Creating This Professional Environment:
- a faculty dedicated to student learning
- a diverse set of computing resources
- a curriculum that can be tailored to satisfy individual objectives
The department is committed to providing knowledgeable and caring faculty, access
to a full range of computers, operating systems, programming languages, and application
packages, and curricular options that address the needs of modern business and scientific
