Computer Information Systems
In the early days, a single computer could be as big as a classroom and they were only owned by some of the largest corporations. Today, there is hardly a business, large or small, or a household for that matter, that doesn't utilize the power of computer hardware and software technology.
Everything from sophisticated, customized business operating systems to personal computers have created an entire industry of computer information systems careers that didn't exist 30 years ago. As technology continues to advance, new job opportunities will also develop.
