MSIS Degree Program’s Commitment to Technology
Master’s of Science in Information Systems Technology
The Marist MSIS graduate program benefits from several long-standing research and development partnerships with corporate entities and government agencies that are housed within the School of Computer Science and Mathematics. These relationships provide graduate students with both high-quality learning environments and career connections and also help to ensure that the Marist College technological infrastructure stays on-par with similar facilities found only at research universities. In addition to offering state-of-the-art technology access, Marist faculty and graduate students also share their expertise with regional small businesses and non-profit groups as a way to extend and deepen the MSIS experience. Marist's Computer Science and Mathematics Advisory Board provides information about some of the individuals who are helping to lead the MSIS program, the School, and our College.
About Marist's Hancock Center
For MSIS students attending classes on campus, the Hancock Center houses both the School of Computer Science and Mathematics and many of the existing regional and global technology initiatives for which Marist has earned a reputation as a leader, including the Center for Collaborative and On-Demand Computing, the Institute for Data Center Professionals, and the IBM-Marist Joint Study Project. In addition, the Hancock Center aids in regional and statewide economic development initiatives and contains office space for start-ups, high-tech education and training facilities, collaborative workspace for joint projects, an executive customer presentation center, and laboratories with shared access to advanced IBM server technologies and Cisco networking systems.
The $32.5 million project was named for lead donor and vice chair of the Marist Board of Trustees, Ellen Hancock and her husband, Jason. The building was designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects, LLP, an award-winning firm that has designed facilities for Harvard, Stanford, and Johns Hopkins, among many others.
