What is Information Systems?

The Information Systems (IS) major prepares students to create, deploy and manage information systems to integrate all aspects of a business. Coursework includes programming, systems analysis and design, database, networking, and electives such as mobile application development. Students can develop specialized skills based on their career interests by choosing among several emphases.

Information Systems at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh

One of the greatest strengths of the Information Systems program at UW-Oshkosh is the high degree of one-on-one engagement between students and faculty. The IS faculty is highly knowledgeable and focused on teaching skills that are relevant to practice. The department maintains a close connection with local and regional employers looking to hire Oshkosh graduates. This close connection with industry helps inform classroom instruction. The IS major is available to students fully admitted into the College of Business.

Connection to Campus and Community

  • Small class sizes allow the Information Systems faculty to get to know you by name, offer assistance inside and outside of the classroom.
  • The Information Systems Club invites professionals, alumni, and other speakers to talk about relevant topics in the IT field. The IS Club also takes tours and trips to local businesses.

Modern Curriculum

  • Created in collaboration with area businesses, classes provided to students offer various IS elements that include building web systems, mobile apps and Oracle databases.
  • We offer a 3-course software development sequence based on object-oriented programming in C#, ASP.Net and Microsoft Azure.
  • Agile project management is integrated throughout the curriculum.
  • Mobile development is based on both Android and iOS.
  • ERP is taught using SAP.
