About the Program

Nowadays, data gathered by information systems exponentially is growing rapidly, so processing and converting this data to information is becoming more important. Information systems are available in innumerable areas. A Master of Science in Information Systems Engineering degree can provide students with a background in systems analysis, computer hardware and systems design. Throughout this program, students often learn to manage systems, support current technology, complete integration and administrative duties, and manage future systems. Specialization options include digital government, digital health, information security, and entrepreneurship.

Education Opportunities

Master of Science in Information Systems Engineering program offers two options: thesis and non-thesis. The thesis program consists of seven courses, seminar and thesis. Two of the seven courses are compulsory and the remaining five courses are graduate-level elective courses in various areas. The non-thesis program is designed for those who do not wish to work on a thesis but would like to further their educational and professional goals. The non-thesis program consists of ten courses and a graduation project. Two of the ten courses are compulsory and the remaining eight courses are graduate-level elective courses. Graduate-level elective courses are not restricted to the field of information systems but offer courses from other engineering field or business and management field. If prospective student has not graduated from Information Systems or relevant areas, the student can be offered up to five undergraduate courses as scientific foundation. Our program is a member of Oracle Academy and Microsoft Imagine Academy.

Career Areas

After completing the Master of Science in Information Systems Engineering degree, students are able to design, develop, operate or test various complexities of information systems with their high-quality education. Organizations that focus on telecommunications, banking, finance, e-commerce, education, health and other service sectors offer wide-range of positions for information systems professionals. Additionally, graduates can work as researchers in projects or can apply to Ph.D. programs to further their academic carrier.
