Operating Systems Environments
From the time this course was originally described, computing has evolved; therefore, the content of the course has evolved. While the catalog description is still valid, the original name of the course no longer reflects the material being taught. The course name is changed to Operating Systems Environments. This name change describes a component, Systems Administration, which has taken on an ever increasing role. CDA 3100 Architecture of Computer Organization is being dropped as a prerequisite since CDA 3100 is being terminated. The course objectives, method of evaluation, and text selections have been changed in according with the above discussion.
The name of the course and the catalog description have been updated. The prerequisites were also updated. The objectives, method of evaluation, and text selection have also been updated.
The reason for these changes is that the original course description and name were over 20 years old. In computing terms, this is ancient. The new name and description accurately reflect the state's description of COP 3531 and the content of the course. One of the original prerequisites (COP 2120 COBOL Prog) is being deleted and the other (MAC 2233 Calc for Bus) is included in COP 3540 Data Structures OOP.New Course Description: This course is for those who want to learn about enterprise computing and data management using COBOL. Organizational data representation is discussed regarding internal business data types and external organizational file systems operations. Business enterprise software development will include report generation, multi-user access, string processing, and independent compilation.
Interactive Systems Development
The offering of CIS 4301 has been discontinued in the IS curriculum as part of recent modifications to the IS curriculum. The course has not been offered for several semesters and is no longer an effective course in the IS curriculum.
Introduction to Computer Hardware Organization
COP 2120 Introduction to COBOL Programming has been removed from the prerequisite listing for CDA 3101 Computer Hardware Organization. The removal supports recent course changes in the IS curriculum. Course objectives, methods of evaluation, and textbook selection for this course have been updated. This update supports recent course changes in the IS curriculum.
Human Factors/ Collaborative Computing
The prerequisite of CDA 3100 Arch of Comp Org is being removed from prerequisite listing for CDA 4011. A new course, COP 3855 Web Access and System Design, is being added as an alternative prerequisite. Students may take either COP3855 or COP 3540 Data Structures in OOP. The reason for this change is to replace a removed prerequisite course with a proposed new course.
System Performance and Evaluation
CDA 3100 Architecture of Computer Organization has been removed from the prerequisite listing for CIS 4100 System Performance and Evaluation. The removal supports recent course changes in the IS curriculum.
New Course Description:
This course is for those who want to learn about enterprise computing and data management using COBOL. Organizational data representation is discussed regarding internal business data types and external organizational file systems operations. Business enterprise software development will include report generation, multi-user access, string processing, and independent compilation.
Information Systems Senior Project I
COP 4720 Database Systems is being changed from a prerequisite to a prerequisite/corequisite. The reason for this change is to more accurately reflect the needed background for students taking Senior Project 1. COP 3540 Data Struc OOP is being dropped as a prerequisite since it is required by COP 4720 so the students will have already taken COP 3540 as a prerequisite to COP 4720. COP 3855 Web Access and Systems Design is being added as a prerequisite to make sure the students have a background in modern computer systems before they take CIS 4327. Course objectives and methods of evaluation have also been modified to reflect these changes.
Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming
COP 3855 Web Access and System Design has been added as a prerequisite for COP 4720, replacing COP 3531 File Structures, which has been moved to major electives. This modification supports current technology and recent changes in the IS curriculum. The course objectives, methods of evaluation, and text selection were updated in accordance with the above discussion.
Architecture of Computer Organization
The offering of CDA 3100 has been discontinued in the IS curriculum. It has been replaced by COP 4640 Operating Systems Environments and Administration as part of recent modifications to the IS curriculum to better meet the current educational needs of the students.
