Computer Science Common Entry

Information technology (IT) is the use of computers to store, retrieve, transmit, and manipulate data, or information, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. The Department of Computer and Information Technology (CIT) at Purdue provides educational opportunities that apply information technology (IT) to solve societal problems. Degree programs in information systems technology and network engineering technology focus on four core areas: software development, systems integration, data management, computer networks. The drive to solve problems extends to industrial and corporate partners and funded faculty research projects as well.

CIS hosts many social functions where undergraduates can meet graduate students and faculty members in a relaxed setting. CIS has a strong peer advising program, providing undergraduates with academic counseling, tutoring, and information on jobs and internships. The Women in Computer Science group allows female undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members to gather for discussions, guest speeches, and social occasions.

This course covers the legal and ethical issues that IT professionals should be knowledgeable of. Case studies will be used to illustrate recent events in the businesses and transactions related to IT. Upon completion of this course, students should be able to analyze the impact of technology on individuals, organizations and society from a legal and ethical perspective.

To a greater or lesser degree, all members of society are dependent upon the world of business and technology. Because of this reality, the Computer Technology Department at Bishop Kelly High School is committed to the belief that a knowledge and skill in technology is vital to success in college or in real-world employment. Design, develop, test, configure and maintain electronic systems by the application of both digital and analog techniques using a variety of electronic instruments, development systems and computer software.

Multimedia on the Web introduces the basics of web communication, webpage function, and design. Students become familiar with digital media including graphics, animation, video, and sound, and use software to create interactive multimedia documents. The College cannot guarantee co-op employment. All co-op students are required to conduct an independent co-op job search in addition to the supports and services provided by the Department of Co-op Education.
