    How hard is it to get a degree in Computer Information Systems?

    -How stressful is the field

    -How hard is it to get a job

    -How often do you have to update your knowledge...


    thanks

    I have a Bachelor Science in Business Administration with a major in CIS - it all depends where you want to go with it - I went the web development route - you can also follow a path directed towards networking, systems administration, project management...depends on what you like. The only stressful thing about it right now is anything in the IT industry that is considered "grunt work" aka intro level is going to be done in Dalian China or Brazil or India...I think you'll work harder findind a solid job than getting the degree.

    What's your pay like? (I know that's not relevant to all CIS fields)

    What do you think about Security/Forensics?

    Once you get in, the job is not bad at all. Has it's stressful moments, so you have to be able to deal with stress. Also depends on where you get a job, I work in health-care so everything is high priority. As for the Computer Science degree, it sucks! Almost every CS degree involves programming, whether you want to be a programmer or not. There are a few out there that focus on networking, but I have to finish my AS before the community college will let me transfer my credits (more than half were given for work experience). Get some Microsoft and Comptia certifications and break into the field. I have been in IT for over 10 years now and still do not have my degree, but am FINALLY working on it. Took my first programming class last semester, hated it, really debating just switching to general studies.

    Pay isn't fantastic where I'm at right now - but if I had anything to do over I'd definitely look for public sector (federal government or state) vs private sector - every time I peek those job postings the pay is almost always better.

    I have degrees in CIS and CS, getting a degree in CIS was pretty easy for me, but I was working on computers since I was a kid, so it came easy to me.

    As for the job, I'm on call ever couple weeks, I would say the job is pretty damn stressful but CIS covers a lot of job fields so it's different for everyone.

    Oh and for a lot of us, we have to work a lot of over time.

    2nd time I've heard that (public sector being better in terms of pay)

    Have any of you gotten an MBA yet?

    I have a bachelors in Management Information Systems and currently a grad student going for my masters in Computer Information Systems.

    MIS was perfect for me because I enjoyed the business aspect of it and at the same time got to learn the technical side.

    MIS/CIS is slightly easier than a CS degree but you still have to take most of the same classes. If you don't enjoy programming or can't grasp the concept than its not for you.

    Landed a job easily right after college in the financial services industry. Once I landed a job I actually learned 100x more there than I ever did at school. Got a new job as a systems analyst in November very easily again and once again I'm learning so much at my new job.

    It seems like everyone is getting their degree in that here. It may be because Lowe's Hardware's main companies are here and that's about the best place to work around here, but even the teachers are telling students it's not a good field to go in because it's getting flooded with applicants.

    lol, it's funny you say that, I heard this when I was in HS, this is not true, best way to get started is to contract for a help desk position or some lower end position, get hired on and then work your way up. Companies love to hire internal, much easier process once your in.

    But i should say it depends where you live, much easier to get a job if you live in the cities...

    Programming sucks bro. Our teacher showed us a site and it showed pictures and captions of the lessons/lectures in college on programming. Basically everything that we have done in an entire year is explained and done within 6 weeks in college and classes are maybe once or twice every week.

    Taking AP programming next year though just for the cool shirts.



    wut?
    Hello! I am very sorry that you are reading this page right now instead of posting hilarious comedy on the internet. I'm sure this issue will resolve itself soon.

    I am a senior in the CIS program and with my concentration being homeland security/criminal justice. I will get a certificate in that along with my major without taking any additional classes. The classes hscj classes are pretty close to information security and digital forensics which seems pretty cool to me. In the CIS program we learn, java, sql, networking, php/web development and systems analysis and design. Since the CIS major is a business degree I also have to take bullshyt classes such as accounting, business law, finance, and marketing.

    I graduate next spring.

    What are you looking to exacty? If you are going in the networking field you can easily skip the degree by getting certified. I work as a recruiter and consultant in the IT field.. let me know if you have any questions.

    The majority of what you learn will be obsolete and no longer in demand by the time you graduate. You can easily get an entry level job with your A+ and Network+ then specialize in more technologies and raise your pay grade.

    The IT and IS fields are in high demand right now and will be for about another 4-6 years. I do not have a job as of yet but I need to do an internship first to graduate.
