Program Overview

Learn the general principles of computer information systems and their applications with the online University Certificate in Computing and Information Systems. You will also gain essential programming and web development skills.

Computer science and information systems come together in the discipline of computing and information systems (CIS). CIS differs somewhat from other purely academic disciplines in that it combines theory and practice into comprehensive skill sets. The University Certificate in Computing and Information Systems will give you the opportunity to develop a sound understanding of the general principles of computer information systems and their applications.

You will learn about

  • programming languages
  • algorithms
  • data structures
  • operating systems
  • computer networks
  • database management
  • systems design and analysis

Through this program you will be able to demonstrate a general understanding of each of these major subject areas that define the discipline, as well as the relationships that exist among them.

Also, with Athabasca University’s selection of elective courses, you can develop specialized skills in areas such as

  • system administration
  • design and analysis of algorithms
  • computer programming
  • human-computer interaction
  • distributed computing
  • web development
