North never stops asking “What’s next?”

Computer information systems students at NVU-Lyndon are forward-thinking, technologically adept, inclined to adopt new approaches, and quick to adjust to change. As a student in this program, you’ll be encouraged by faculty and staff whose goal is the same as yours — defining your future and the path to get you there.

Technology drives big data, quick changes in computer information systems, and growth in the sciences. It’s an exciting time to explore computer science and math, and NVU graduates leave prepared for in-demand careers. Our alumni go on to work in finance, business, computer science, education, engineering, programming, and systems analysis. At NVU, you will be successful in small classes with personal attention from faculty who will advise and mentor you.

You’ll enhance your classroom learning with hands-on experience by interning at local businesses, working as a tutor to help fellow students grasp complex concepts, and traveling to present papers and posters at professional conferences.

“Faculty learn your name and a whole bunch of things about you, and sometimes they’re able to personalize the class for you. If you’re ahead of the curve, they can give you harder assignments.”
