Carroll College offers a bachelor's degree program that can be completed in 2-4 years, depending on how you structure your curriculum. The major in computer information systems is relatively new and might be a good choice if you are interested in how technology can be used in the business environment. Major program and business classes cover topics in data structures and program design, networking, operating systems, business law and management. You will also be required to perform a 1-credit internship. This degree program can help you acquire the skills you need to work as a business information analyst, computer systems analyst and database administrator, network systems and data communication analyst or computer applications software engineer.
Montana Tech is located in the city of Butte in southwest Montana.

Course topics in these areas include accounting information systems, programming, systems design, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access.
