CTU’s Doctor of Computer Science - Enterprise Information Systems degree program is designed for computer science professionals who would like to pursue leadership roles in the design, implementation and management of huge databases and large scale systems in almost any type of organization – including those that operate on a global level. Through coursework and research, you can have the opportunity to become well versed in the current body of knowledge pertaining to enterprise information systems – and become familiar with models such as CMMI and the Baldridge Process. Along with the opportunity to develop technical expertise to manage the IT implementation process, testing and user testing, you could develop the ability to effectively communicate technical material to non-technical decision makers.
Year 1: Foundations
Year one focuses on computer science and information systems topics and an orientation to research and writing at the doctoral level. Coursework covers current topics in the disciplines as well as research methods and qualitative techniques. The research component results in a broad overview of the student’s area of concentration in order to put the research into context and inform the student’s selection of a research topic.
Year 2: Acquisition of Knowledge
Once the foundations are in place, year two is where each student develops an in-depth understanding of the knowledge and research methods in his or her chosen area of study. While most of the effort in year two is on developing a richer understanding of the discipline, the research courses include quantitative methods and the dissertation process.
Year 3: Leadership and Professional Advancement
Coursework in the final year of the program includes the two remaining concentration courses plus the final six doctoral research courses that enable one to complete the research and dissertation.
