The Tech Academy and Concordia University Partner to Offer a CIS Minor
By: The Tech Academy
A pilot partnership was launched in August 2017, in which Concordia University offered a Computer Science course covering the first three courses of The Tech Academy's program. These courses included Technology Basics, Overview of Software Development, and Version Control. Seeing the success of these "pilot" courses, The Tech Academy and Concordia decided to expand the partnership to offer the Computer Information Systems Minor starting August 2018. There are currently about 20 students on track to obtaining a CIS Minor!
Concordia's CIS Minor program consists of five online courses, that should be taken sequentially. Through these courses students will learn the fundamentals of Computer Science, as well as technical skills like web design and computer program development.
The course list is as follows:
• CIS 230: Computer & Software Development Fundamentals
• CIS 232: Front-End Web Development
• CIS 334: Database and SQL
• CIS 336: Technology Project Management
• CIS 450: CIS Capstone
These courses are fully accredited, and cover the entirety of The Tech Academy's curriculum. The Tech Academy has two dedicated instructors to serve the university students, Lyci George and Hannah Patterson.
Everyone here at The Tech Academy is excited to be contributing valuable education and training to the Concordia University community. We wholeheartedly agree that "partnerships help create an entire education ecosystem where everyone involved can fulfill their highest potential."
