Computers are everywhere in today’s society. The infrastructure of business, government, science, and everyday life are increasingly based on computers and digital communication. Whether listening to a digital music player, text messaging with a friend, driving a modern car, trading stocks, producing a movie, buying anything on the Internet, flying an airplane, searching for information, performing or being subject to a medical procedure, or playing a video game, there is dependency on networks of computers that store, exchange, and process information in increasingly elaborate ways. Understanding the foundations of this technology, what it can do, what its limitations are, how it relates to information processing in living things and society, and how it can be used allows students to better understand, create, and decide whatever career, further education, or personal pursuits they desire. Computing is a critical tool for controlling and shaping the processes of modern society.

The Computer Science and Information Systems (CSIS) program at AUK encompasses the principles of computing that enables students to keep abreast of developments in a rapidly changing technology. CSIS students not only gain a solid foundation in the theory and design of modern computing systems, but are exposed to a variety of applied applications in lab assignments, internships, and in a semester-based senior capstone project course. The students are also encouraged to explore cross-disciplinary connections by completing a minor in a related field.
