Get the degree needed for high-demand computer management careers
The Computer Information Systems Technology Bachelor of Applied Science degree is intended to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to enter the workforce in a mid-level management position.
Eastern Florida State College offers five specializations in this degree, all aligned with fast-growing management careers in the information technologies field.
- Computer Project Management
- Data Science
- Networking Systems
- Program Development/Software Development
The five specializations prepare graduates for entry level as well as administrative/managerial positions in business, industry, technical , health care services and other related industries in the public, private and non-profit sectors. This B.A.S. degree is eligible as part of the $10,000 Bachelor's Degree Program.
The compatible Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees aligned with the Computer Information Systems Technology BAS include Aerospace Technology, Business Administration and Management, Chemical Technology, Computer Information Technology, Computer Programming and Analysis, Digital Television/Digital Media Production, Engineering Technology, Networking Services Technology, Computer Specialist and Web Development Specialist.
Completion of the following courses with a grade of "C" or better is required for graduation from a Computer BAS track. It's recommended that students complete them within the first 30 hours of their Bachelor program:
- MAC 1311 - Calculus 1
- PHY 2048 - General Physics 1
- COP 2334 - C++ Programming or other suitable Programming Course
Students with an A.S degree may have taken these courses, but if not they will be required and an advisor can help with course planning.
Students entering the Computer BAS program with an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree may be required to take additional math and science courses (see the course list above), plus technical elective credit hours which should be selected in collaboration with an advisor.
The Bachelor of Applied Science Degree (BAS) is a career-oriented degree that builds on skills acquired in the workplace or through previous coursework. The BAS programs are designed for students who already hold an Associate in Science, Associate in Arts or higher degree from a regionally accredited institution, including recent graduates and those with experience in the work force.
Students pursuing the BAS degree at Eastern Florida State College must have at a minimum:
- Earned an A.S. or A.A. degree from a regionally accredited college.
- An Associate of Applied Science ( A.A.S.) degree does not meet the minimum eligibility requirements for entry into a BAS program. A.A.S. degree holders interested in transfer to a BAS program should consult with an academic advisor to review coursework and determine the best transfer options.
Note: Students may earn the BAS/CTBS once, choosing one specialization from available Computer Information Systems Technology tracks. If students want to take courses from another specialization, they may do so as a non-degree student. The official curriculum in the current online EFSC catalog supersedes all other information. EFSC reserves the right to make changes in the online and printed versions of the curriculum as circumstances require. It is expected that the only changes will be the correction of errors and the inclusion of new courses and programs approved during the academic year.
