CIS Programs

Computer Information Systems (CIS)

Information technology is one of the strongest fields in the state of Michigan and across the United States. The field is comprised of high demand and well-paid positions in the areas of software engineering, web design and development, cybersecurity, networking, systems analysis, system support, and data management.

The Computer Information Systems (CIS) discipline at Oakland Community College offers high quality degrees, certificates, and courses in each of these high demand areas. Every CIS course and program has been designed to consider the needs of students who:

  • Have no post-secondary degree and are looking to earn a CIS certificate or CIS associate degree to directly enter the job market;
  • Are looking to complete the first two years of college at OCC and transfer to a computer science program at a four-year university;
  • Currently have a bachelor degree in another field and are looking to earn a CIS certificate at OCC to move into a career in information technology; or
  • Are currently employed in information technology and are looking to enhance their skill set with our cutting-edge courses.
