CIS 286 Systems Analysis and Design (3 credits)

This course is the capstone course for Computer Information Systems majors, requiring students to integrate techniques and concepts learned from their other coursework. The course will focus on the phases of the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC), and the roles and responsibilities that a systems analyst performs throughout the SDLC process. Students will be expected to work in collaborative, self-directed teams to produce comprehensive projects, culminating in a thorough, concise study of a simulated environment that will be used to research and create a system design. Students will also be expected to present their projects in a professional manner, demonstrating the ability to deliver technical information to a non-technical audience. Prerequisite: CIS 125 or permission of instructor.
