Boston University's online Master of Science in Computer Information Systems degree program now features two new state-of-the-art concentrations, Computer Networks and Web Application Development, designed for working professionals.

Our online MSCIS program is the first choice for dedicated professionals looking for a rigorous academic educational experience in a number of state-of-the-art IT areas, such as Computer Networks and Web Application Development.

Boston University’s Metropolitan College is proud to announce two new concentrations, Computer Networks and Web Application Development, in the online Master of Science in Computer Information Systems (MSCIS) degree program. BU’s MSCIS program is known for delivering cutting-edge technical education and an innovative hands-on curriculum that is continually refreshed to reflect emerging information technology trends.

“Our online MSCIS program is the first choice for dedicated professionals looking for a rigorous academic educational experience in a number of state-of-the-art IT areas, such as Computer Networks and Web Application Development. We achieve that by offering the most convenient and the latest delivery methods for our classes, while adhering to the highest academic standards of Boston University,” says Dr. Lou Chitkushev, chair of the Computer Science Department at Boston University Metropolitan College.

Each of the newly launched concentrations is designed for working professionals in search of an academically rigorous curriculum and teaches information relevant to emerging trends. The field of web application development is growing rapidly thanks in part to the increasing popularity of handheld technologies.

Recognizing that people have access to more data on more devices than ever before, today’s businesses must rely heavily on web application developers to consider how the organization’s data is displayed online across various platforms, including mobile devices and tablets. BU’s MSCIS program teaches web application technology, including AJAX and HTML5, which run on the full range of web devices including tablets and smartphones.

With the rise in internet traffic and the critical importance of an enhanced user experience, network professionals must update their skills to design and manage advanced computer networks that can provide fast, reliable, and secure transfer of data.

Each MSCIS concentration is part of BU’s highly interactive educational experience that is nationally recognized for 21st century best practices in online learning. In fact, for the second year in a row, an online course from BU’s MSCIS program has won the Blackboard Catalyst Awards for Exemplary Course Program (ECP). This award honors the most innovative, engaging, and effective online learning experiences.

The award-winning coursework for the online master’s degree in CIS is continually refreshed by highly regarded faculty who are recognized experts in the field. As Chairman of BU’s Computer Science Department, Dr. Lou Chitkushev readily shares his years of experience in networking, data assurances, and biomedical informatics. Other dynamic members of the MSCIS faculty also bring impressive industry experience to the classroom, giving students practical knowledge and the opportunity to learn through analysis of real-world situations.

From the highly regarded course content to the personal attention of expert faculty, students are immersed in an engaging learning community. Today’s aspiring IT professionals have more reasons than ever before to rely on BU’s strong academic reputation for a highly credible master’s in CIS degree.
