Program Description:

With information technology permeating all aspects of modern society, the creation and operation of contemporary information system is an immensely complex challenge for all organizations. Information Systems Engineering (ISE) is a multi-disciplinary program that focuses on the analysis, design, development, and integration of systems that enable the effective and efficient use of information in today’s highly dynamic environment. Building on the disciplines of software engineering, systems engineering, information assurance, and networking, ISE employs techniques and methodologies that allow practitioners to create and manage complex information systems to solve real-world problems. The Master of Science in ISE is designed to appeal to a wide range of individuals. The program balances theory with practice, offers an extensive set of traditional and state-of-the-art courses, and provides the flexibility to accommodate students with various backgrounds. As a result, the program will appeal to engineers and scientists seeking an applied technology program designed to enhance their ability to develop real-world information systems.  It will also appeal to technically oriented business people looking to acquire a deeper understanding of information technology to manage systems and resources more effectively. By providing a broad-based education in the field, the ISE program will allow students to design large-scale information systems, develop efficient network architectures, conduct complex systems analyses, and create sophisticated distributed and secure systems. Courses are offered across a wide range of topic areas, including software engineering, systems engineering, information assurance, network engineering, distributed computing, information management, and human-computer interaction. Research and development interests of the faculty span the spectrum of information systems engineering. Students may take courses at the Appli
