Academic Calendar 2022/23

Computer Information Systems

Computer Information Systems differs from Computing Science in that there tends to be an increased focus on using technology effectively to support and add value to organizations. This requires breadth and business knowledge as well as both theory and hands-on practice.

UFV offers a Bachelor of Computer Information Systems degree, a CIS diploma and certificate, a Coding Skills associate certificate, and a Data Analysis Post-baccalaureate certificate.

CIS students may choose to apply directly to the BCIS degree, and can apply to graduate with the CIS certificate and diploma after completing the required coursework. Both the diploma and the degree can be obtained with a Co-operative Education option. Several concentrations are also available in the BCIS program, and students can choose to combine their BCIS with a minor or extended minor in a discipline other than CIS or Computing Science (e.g., Business Administration, Mathematics, Visual Arts, Geography).

UFV also offers a minor and extended minor in Computer Information Systems which can be added to a degree in any other area, and a major and minor in Computing Science for students who wish to focus on the theoretical and mathematical aspects of computing. Students interested in these options should consult with their program advisor and the CIS department.
