Prepare for achievement.

Turn your talent into a rewarding, high-growth career.

Few fields are growing and changing as fast as computers and information technology. That means there’s a strong need for professionals with the specialized and up-to-date skills to develop, manage, upgrade, and secure computer-based systems and applications. 

As computer-driven technology continues to advance, the range of computer-related careers is wider than ever before. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that average employment in nearly all computer information systems occupations will grow much faster than any other occupation. 

Just as importantly, salaries are higher, too. The average salary in this industry is almost twice as high as in the general economy, and people in the top 25% typically make six-figure annual salaries. 

At Baker, you can choose among certificate, associate, and bachelor degree programs in a variety of computer technologies. So whether you’re just entering the field, or looking to advance, Baker has a program that fits your goals for a successful CIS career.

Available Degrees

Baker College prepares you for your career in computer information systems through carefully designed programs that include both classroom instruction and work experience. Each program has an Advisory Board made up of employers in the field, who work with us to design the curriculum and update it regularly, so that our degree programs meet the demands of today’s workplaces. 

As a Baker student, you are assured of gaining the theoretical and practical knowledge you need, along with the problem-solving, decision-making, and analytical skills that employers look for. When you graduate, you’ll be prepared to work as part of a team — ready to take on new challenges and grow in your job.
