To meet the needs of those who want to combine their knowledge of the business world with a background in computers, Lee College offers the computer information systems (CIS) program. The computer information systems (CIS) program was created to prepare programmers and analysts for work in business and industry. The program's goal is to produce graduates who can understand the technical aspects of computer systems, apply these systems to various business organizations and grow professionally in a rapidly-changing field. The program is in its second year at Lee College. According to program coordinator William E. Farley, many upper-level universities offer a parallel program to which graduates of the LC CIS program may transfer if they wish. Industry has dictated a need for such a program, according to Farley. Employees of businesses have often lacked an educational base that provides for technological excellence in utilizing computers in a com. pany setting. Because of this, they are also sometimes unprepared for promotion to more responsible positions at a later date. The CIS associate in arts degree is the first step toward obtaining a baccalaureate degree which prepares these workers for employment as technologically-competent business computer programmers/anal vsts. Additionally. because of the heavy reliance on complementary business courses, it also furnishes them with the necessary tools for future professional growth. Since its inception, the data processing curriculurh at Lee College has thoroughly prepared students for careers in computer programming,, which involves the development of application software. The CIS program, which gives students a background in business as well as computers, complements the current structure of the discipline. According to Farley, an advantage of the computer information systems program is that graduates have the opportunity to expand their skills because they are not tunnel- visioned on computers. Because they also have a background in business, they will be more attractive to employers. An associate in arts degree in this field is fully transferrable to upper-level institutions. Students can advance to upper- division schools of business or management information systems departments, where they will concentrate on the application of the system development life cycle to business- oriented, computer-based systems. Regular registration will be Aug. 24 through 29 in Lee College's Moler Hall. Hours are 10 a.m. to7 p.m. Aug. 24 through 27, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 28 and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 29. For information on the CIS degree program at Lee College, contact Farley at 425-6462 or the LC Counseling Center at 4256384. Sun spots StrickJer rites A MEMORIAL SERVICE for Ira W.
