About Information Systems Engineering

Information Systems Engineering (ISE) is the effective use or engineering of information systems for a better understanding of data to optimize decision making. ISE is a multidisciplinary area of study that involves software, digital storage and retrieval, networks, human computer interaction, information security, digital design and electronic media.

Information Systems Engineering is a systematic and interdisciplinary means of approaching and exploiting information in and across physical, mathematical, business, social science, legal and information science disciplines. It is the incorporation of complex information systems involving software, digital storage and retrieval, networks, human computer interaction, information security/information assurance, digital design, and electronic media. The undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree is designed to prepare entry level engineers who are prepared to work with complex information systems and who have the skills and knowledge to advance steadily in their careers.
