Information Systems update
Georgia College has been accepted into the prestigious Association of Information Systems (AIS) Student Chapters. Our student chapter joins the ranks with other respectable schools such as the University of Georgia, University of Florida, Kennesaw State, and Georgia State University. The Information Systems’ faculty members believe the AIS mission is a great fit with the MIS program goals and the mission of the College of Business. We are excited to become part of the AIS, and we hope to be sending our students to compete at the national level. AIS is a national organization that offers its members opportunities for networking with both professionals and students. At Georgia College, we will sponsor both professional development and social events which will allow our members to practice business etiquette and promote networking. Georgia College’s AIS chapter will also bring in numerous top employers to discuss the operations of their companies and to network with our members.
The Department of Information Systems & Computer Science at Georgia College is working with the College of Computing at Georgia Tech to institute a “semester away”. This semester away would allow senior computer science majors to take specialized computer science courses at Georgia Tech. This would allow students all the benefits of the liberal arts foundation and small class sizes at Georgia College while allowing them to experience specialized computer science classes at Georgia Tech. If all the details are worked out this semester, the first student could experience a “semester away” as early as next fall.
Dr. Yoonae Ahn, a faculty member at the Korean National University of Transportation (our newest partner university), will be a visiting faculty member this year doing research on site at Georgia College. The Department of Information Systems & Computer Science is pleased to welcome her and her daughter to Milledgeville.
