Information Systems

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Information systems is a field of study that teaches students the most important elements of both business and computer science to prepare them for a field in several industries, including those with large mega-corporations, private market analyst positions and even important government jobs.

Armenia a landlocked country in the Caucasus of SW Asia; official language, Armenian; capital, Yerevan. The Armenian homeland fell under Turkish rule from the 16th century, and with the decline of the Ottomans was divided between Turkey, Iran, and Russia. Russian Armenia was absorbed into the Soviet Union in 1922, gaining independence as a member of the Commonwealth of Independent States in 1991

A big number of universities in Armenia are situated in Yerevan where a large number of them is owned by a private individual compared to state owned. Every year the number of students is increasing.

Masters in Information Systems in Yerevan in Armenia. The two-year IESM program (a.k.a. Operations and Systems Management) is designed to provide a broad-based education in the areas of operations management, service and production systems, information technologies, and communication. Through a set of core courses, students learn the basic methods of formulating and solving problems. Attention is given to the changing nature of demands and capacities, principles of decision-making under uncertainty, risk management, quality management and assurance, effective use of information technologies, modeling and analysis of large systems, and techniques for finding optimal solutions applicable to businesses today. IESM students have the chance to minor in Business, Energy, Computer Aided Design/Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Learn how to: operate business more effectively optimize business decisions improve and assure quality in a business transform an idea into a viable product or business IESM Course Overview Students must complete 9 core courses, the environmental management requirement, a master thesis or project, a number of elective courses, plus a minor. Some of courses cover the following content: Quality control and assurance Simulation, forecasting and optimization Supply-chain management Risk management, investment evaluation Business-process analysis Product development, value creation Project management Energy decision tools Prototyping, CAD/CAM Entrepreneurship and business startups IESM Application Requirements To be considered for admission, an applicant must meet the AUA general admission requirements and the CIS and IESM specific requirements. Applicants are expected to: Hold an undergraduate degree in fields including mathematics, science and engineering. Students with degrees in non-science disciplines may be admitted, depending on their completed course work. The undergraduate degree must include, as a minimum, two years of college-level mathematics covering calculus, linear algebra and differential equations, and a course in physical sciences (physics, mechanics, chemistry, biology, etc). Present an Internet-based TOEFL (iBT) score of at least 79, or an IELTS score of at least 6.5.The test must have been taken within two years prior to the application date. Present a score in at least the 50 percentile on the Graduate Record Examinations Test (GRE) Quantitative section. The test must have been taken within two years prior to the application date. Submit an informative Statement of Purpose. IESM Program Description IESM Graduation Requirements To graduate with a Master of Engineering (M.E.) degree, 57 semester credits are required. The program of study must include nine core courses (27 credits), 6 credits for the capstone requirement and an additional eight elective courses (24 credits, including 9 credits in minor). Students must also complete the university-wide Environmental Sciences requirement. Typically, full-time students complete the degree in two years (four semesters). Required Core Courses (27 credits) IESM 300 Probability Theory IESM 310 Engineering Statistics IESM 340 Engineering Economics IESM 301 Analysis and Design of Data Systems IESM 320 Operations Research 1 IESM 321 Operations Research 2 IESM 331 Production System Analysis IESM 311 Quality Assurance and Management IESM 330 Simulation of Industrial Systems Environmental Management Students must fulfill the Environmental Sciences requirement. This is typically accomplished through the completion of a course (at least one unit) offered by the Acopian Center for the Environment or by completing a CSE course designed and specified to fulfill this requirement. Capstone sequence (6 credits) The objective of the Capstone requirement in the College of Science and Engineering is to provide a culminating educational experience, where the student, under the supervision of a faculty member, conducts an individual effort employing concepts and methods learned in the program to solve a problem of significant importance from a practical or theoretical standpoint. The Capstone can be fulfilled by two different options. Each of them requires 6 credits toward graduation. Elective courses (24 credits, of which 9 credits in a Minor) Students must complete at least 24 credits of electives (nine credits in a single Minor). Students choose a Minor from among the following areas: Business Management, Energy, Design & Manufacturing, or Computer and Information Science. The Minor gives students an opportunity to explore other fields strongly connected to industrial engineering. It is very important that engineers gain an understanding of related areas in which industrial engineering tools are applied. IESM Learning Outcomes Program goals Teach students to define, diagnose, and solve real-life problems from an industrial engineering and systems perspective and within a multi-disciplinary, enterprise-wide context. Foster the appreciation for further education and lifelong learning for continued professional development. Develop strong communication skills both within and outside the field. Nurture the professional values of leadership, integrity, judgment, and teamwork. IESM program learning outcomes Collect data and be able to interpret, analyze and draw appropriate conclusions. Identify, formulate and solve engineering problems through the techniques, skills and modern tools of Industrial Engineering. Consider alternatives and make a decision based on a proper engineering/scientific/business justification. Identify and evaluate existing research thoroughly and systematically which is relevant to a problem or topic of inquiry. Cultivate the disposition to discover and learn new material on his/her own, including the ability to conduct independent research. Produce and deliver professional written and oral presentations, and effectively communicate with specialists and non-specialists. Act as a exponent of ethical, innovative and responsible engineering. Exhibit teamwork skills and be able to assume a leadership role, including in multi-disciplinary team environments. Understand the impact of engineering components, processes or systems in an economic, environmental and societal context. [-]
