Johnson County Community College Computing Sciences and Information Technology Department November, 2018

CIS – Computer Information Systems
Students completing the Software Capstone course, CIS- 264 Application Development and Programming, presented their end of the year projects. Students experienced a real-life software development process by developing an application to meet a current demand of our partner organizations. Students applied and increased their technical skills as well as communication, leadership, and collaboration. The CSIS department would like to thank Phoenix Family, Community LINC, and Operation Wildlife, for the valuable real-life experience granted to our students.

On November 2nd, the CSIS department held its advisory board meeting. During the meeting an increased interest was expressed by multiple members to provide shadow opportunities for students in our degrees and certificate programs.

The IT Networking department recently sponsored 5 students competing in a National Cybersecurity competition called National Cyber League. We had students finish 93rd and 214th out of 4,729 students. The competition assessed critical skills such as log analysis, cryptography, and network traffic analysis.
