Large Computing Systems (advanced)

Mainframe computer systems have been the cornerstone of the US economy for over three decades. Due to their high throughput and reliability, they are playing an increasingly important role in supporting the scalability and service quality of e-commerce operations. In addition, most of the major financial companies use mainframe systems to maintain their business data and to deliver services to their remote clients, or to integrate heterogeneous IT infrastructure systems across company boundaries.
The purpose of this program offered by the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems is to cultivate quality IT professionals who can maximize the use of mainframe systems to support their organizations. Graduates of this five-course program will be well-versed in the mainframe hardware/software environment and be able to install new server software, configure reliable server systems, and develop new mainframe applications for use in today’s server-based IT environment.
