Bachelor of Science in Information Systems
Degree Codes: Program- BSIS Plan- BSIS


BS-IS is an undergraduate program that focuses on the effective design, development and implementation of information and communications technology (ICT) resources to ensure information systems, applications and resource viability in various industry sectors (business, education, media and entertainment, healthcare, government, and service).

The program is intended to train future ICT professionals in the science of conceptualizing, designing, implementing, maintaining and managing information and communications technology resources in specific and applied environments. This new breed of ICT professionals will support the corporate, end-user and ubiquitous computing services applied in various areas such as business, education, media and entertainment, and other industry areas.

This program takes into account the current revolution of technology and its future. The program acknowledges the fact that technology is not just computer and computers alone is not technology. With the myriad technological developments, specifically the convergence of computers, information technology and communications technology has led to new and innovative ways of doing things, from personal and household use to professional and business use.

The program recognizes that technology has not only penetrated the realm of business, education, government and other forms of groups and organizations but also the daily lives of people belonging to such environment. Such requires an understanding of this new dimension of technology vis-à-vis the real world. Technology has broken bridges between people and the organization, between home and schools, between the person and its community. This program is designed to produce students who recognize this impact and the potential of technology in the society of the future.

With the BS-IS program, the definition of technology is now expanded to include convergence and emerging technologies and the domain to which it is applied, not just for business - but also for education, governance, personal, household, and entertainment.
