in thread (OT) Should math (or adv. math) be required in CIS degrees?
CS is Computer Science - CIS is Computer Information
Systems. Are they different? Mostly yes: CIS is more about
business/management and CS is more about science (theory
and abstraction). The main programming language of CIS is
still COBOL while C++ still rules CS (there are exceptions,
of course). At the univerisity i
graduated from (CS major), the CS drop outs usually became
CIS majors. Both programs required higher math, but CIS
had easier calculus courses. They also had/have better
facilities and more money than the CS department. Damned
