The SC&IS program integrates source (strategic procurement and supply management), make (manufacturing and service operations), deliver (demand fulfillment), and return (reverse logistics, recycle, and remanufacture) processes, along with information systems as the critical enabler of supply chain efficiencies and responsiveness.

The MIS major offers students the opportunity to develop technical knowledge, skills, and abilities in the information systems area, where applications are presented in the context of supply chain processes. The core areas of study include algorithmic programming, database concepts, system design and analysis, data communications and networks, Internet technologies, and enterprise information systems.

The department also houses the following undergraduate minors:

Supply Chain and Information Sciences and Technology (SCIST) Minor: The minor in SCIST is structured to provide students not majoring in SC&IS or MIS with the opportunity to develop working knowledge of information technology, supply chain management, and their interdisciplinary synergies.
Information Systems Management (ISM) Minor: interdisciplinary minor is designed for students of other majors interested in the study of technology-supported techniques for exploring, analyzing, integrating, and reporting business data to facilitate fact-based decisions.
