TU begins offering bachelor’s degree in Computer Systems ManagementPost Published On:
This fall Thomas University will begin offering several new degrees. One of them will be the Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Systems Management. Housed within TU’s School of Professional Studies, the degree includes completely online classes designed to fit the schedules of students balancing career and family responsibilities while also earning a degree.
“The South Georgia region continues to attract new industry into the area, and those employers need highly qualified employees to manage their technology infrastructure,” said Dr. John Meis, Vice President for Academic Affairs. “This degree program, as well as several others that have recently been developed, provides our graduates with the technical knowledge and industry certifications that employers require and that graduates will need in order to launch successful careers.”
Students who earn a degree in Computer Systems Management will be ready to work in the areas of Computer Science, Management Information Systems or Project Management. In the degree program they will learn, among other things, how to analyze user and client needs to design, implement and evaluate computing-based solutions to complex business problems, and how to communicate effectively with stakeholders about functional areas of computer systems management, such as hardware, software, networking, security and cloud applications.
After earning TU’s bachelor’s degree in Computer Systems Management, graduates will also have industry certifications in the areas of Computer Science, Management Information Systems or Project Management.
“This is a high need/high demand field,” Meis said. “According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics’ May 2019 National Employment and Wage Estimates, Computer and Information Systems Manager was among the occupations with the greatest employment demand and an annual median wage in the top 10 percent of occupations requiring a bachelor’s degree. The Computer Systems Management degree program will prepare students for this specific occupation. The certifications that are built into it will give our graduates the advantage of having practical, applied knowledge of the field and credentials that employers recognize and value by the time they graduate.”
