Welcome to the Math, Computing and Information Systems Department!

Each faculty member is a mix of generalist and specialist. We are familiar with the curriculum, but at the same time we each have our areas of specialization. This means that in our courses we can easily relate material from different aspects, and also is important for students who wish to discuss the range of careers.
MCIS students are motivated, enthusiastic, responsible and hard-working. Our students come from across the U.S. and around the world.

Info. Systems senior nabs coveted internship with Ellucian
For most colleges and universities across the country, including Marietta College, Ellucian, formerly known as Datatel, is the software provider of choice.
This summer, eight college students were chosen to participate in Ellucian’s highly selective internship program, including Marietta’s own Austin Sampson ’13 (Waterford, Ohio).
Sampson, an Information Systems major, has been working with the Mobile Development team in the Software Development division of Ellucian. He first learned about this 13-week internship in Fairfax, Va., from his advisor, Bob Van Camp, Associate Professor.
“Most of the internships we get in the IS department are more business orientated working around the MIS half of the major. This one, however, was more software orientated and dealt with development,” says Sampson, whose inclinations toward software development have been reaffirmed by this experience.

"Without a doubt, the opportunity to publish in a refereed journal as an undergraduate greatly helped my chances in getting into the IE/OR program at Penn State. While at Penn State I found that the rigorous math background from Marietta College had prepared me very well, and I was more than prepared for the coursework at Penn State. "
