» Computer Science & Information Systems
It’s no wonder that computer technology and its applications in the business world have generated more jobs than any other area of commerce over the past ten years. Elmhurst College has played an active part in this evolution by offering programs in computer science and information systems that combine a solid background in technology and theory with a real-world approach to career opportunities and advancement.
By teaching a curriculum recommended by the Association of Computer Machinery and focusing instruction on competence and mastery of the subject matter, Elmhurst graduates students with the skills and confidence to make immediate contributions to their profession. Elmhurst has resources that you’d expect to find only at a large university. Daniels Hall is well equipped with multiple T-1 lines, state-of-the-art labs, and a wealth of other resources.
We also offer a master's degree in computer information systems, a program offered with classroom and online options. Our program recently was recognized as a Professional Science Master’s (PSM) degree, an affiliation billed as “the MBA for the 21st century.”
Elmhurst computer science students have built highly successful corporate careers as senior level hardware/software engineers and software managers at corporations such as McDonald’s, Microsoft, Motorola, Sears, HSBC Finance, IBM, Ernst & Young, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and many others.
