Professor Engebretson
Associate Professor Meysenburg

Numerous career and graduate school opportunities exist for students who have completed a major in the area of information science and technology, whether it be in computer science or information systems. The opportunities available span many industries and disciplines, making a computer science or information systems major quite valuable, whether alone or in combination with majors or minors from other disciplines at Doane.

The information science and technology program at Doane includes experiences both inside and outside the classroom to provide students with a clear understanding of information science and technology concepts; the confidence and skills to work with existing and emerging information technology; the confidence and skills to efficiently research and learn an unknown topic or solve an unknown problem; and the confidence and skills to effectively communicate, including writing, speaking, reading, and listening.

As there are many areas of interest in the information science and technology field, reflected by the electives available at Doane, students are strongly encouraged to work with an information science and technology faculty member in developing a course of study most beneficial to each individual student's interests. Students planning to seek a major in computer science, a major in information systems, a teaching endorsement in computer science, a minor in computer studies, or those who would like to explore any of these options, should contact a member of the information science and technology faculty as early as possible.
