Discover computer information sys​tems

The computer information systems program at UW-Stevens Point provides a rich academic training and practical experience in computer science. Computer majors receive training in core computing topics such as computer programming, systems analysis, network administration, and database development. We keep our students up to date with the most recent advances and trends by offering a rich set of electives that cover topics including mobile application development, parallel programming and advanced .NET. The department also contributes to the collaboratively managed health information management and technology program.      

Find web development opportunities

The Bachelor’s program in web development takes a multidisciplinary approach to preparing graduates for roles in which they collaboratively study, design and develop interactive products and services through a user-centered design process with electives such as animation, game development and usability testing. Through user research, interaction design and prototyping, programming and evaluation, web development graduates have a direct impact on the usability and user experience of new software programs, websites and devices. Web development is unique in placing people, their needs and expectations and use of technology at the center of its educational focus. This is important as information technology becomes more ingrained in everything people do so that we develop technology that is viable, usable, and pleasurable.

Post-graduate opportunities

Our department has long-standing regional, national and international partnerships with some of the best companies and organizations in the world by which students enjoy numerous internship and employment opportunities.

Local employers in the computer information systems and web development programs include Sentry Insurance, Skyward, Marshfield Clinic Information Systems, Skyline, Breakthrough Fuels, Delta Dental, Pointe Precision, Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection, and others.
