The University of Michigan Community College Summer Institute (CCSI) is a fully funded in-residence experience designed specifically for Michigan Community College students to learn more about the career and academic opportunities available to those pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Information degree (BSI) and explore the University of Michigan campus.  The next institute will take place in May, 2018.

A Bachelor of Science in Information is ideal for anyone interested in exploring how technology can be used to create digital solutions that improve lives. The curriculum develops both hard and soft skills, from coding to communication to collaboration.

BSI students examine such transformative issues as:

• Do social media enhance or undermine human relationships?
• How does the information flow in doctors’ offices and hospitals affect our personal health?
• How are scientists using massive sets of data to track global phenomena like climate change?
• What are the implications of shifting from traditional, authority-based sources of information to crowd-sourced knowledge bases
like Wikipedia?

100% of our graduates go on to great careers with average starting salaries of $70,000 (up from $61,000 in 2015). BSI graduates are employed at places like Ford Motor Company, General Electric, Google, Lowe’s and Yahoo.
