The Graduate School of Operational and Information Sciences consists of the following departments:

Cyber Academic Group CAG
Computer Science CS
Defense Analysis DA
Information Sciences IS
Operations Research OR

Overview

The Graduate School of Operational and Information Sciences includes Graduate Resident Programs consisting of 15 technical curricula and awards Master of Science and Ph.D. degrees across five academic departments. The faculty number approximately 100 and educate approximately 600 military and DoD students annually.

In the domains of education and ideas, staying current in these dynamic times is basic to the Graduate School of Operational and Information Sciences. Unlike a civilian university, at GSOIS we know we are educating our students for military related careers. First, we teach them scientific principles and mathematical methods, and then we teach them how to apply them to military objectives when they return to service.

Another university could not tailor a curriculum, adapt to change, or transform its courses as swiftly as do the GSOIS faculty. For example, pedagogically, we have embraced the shift to distance learning, especially in the past five years, as Web-based instruction has become an efficient delivery mode, and we supplement it with Video TeleEducation so that students will benefit in widely dispersed locations, sometimes in ships at sea.

Mission Statement

To deliver graduate-level education and conduct cutting-edge research in four nontraditional knowledge domains in response to the needs of naval and DoD customers. Our four knowledge domains are:

  • Information Science and Technology
  • Military Computer Science
  • Military Operations Analysis and Research
  • Special Operations and Related Defense Analysis
