What will I learn?

The University offers a bachelor of science (B.S.) in information technology.

The information technology major is a real-world, hands-on major that fills the gap between computer scientists and general users. Graduates understand the fundamental concepts of information processing and are able to use them to troubleshoot a multitude of end-user application problems.

The major requires a core of basic coursework in computer science, electronics and computer technology, and management information systems. Students also complete a specialized track, developed in conjunction with a faculty advisor.

The computer science component offers exposure to operating systems, programming languages, computer architecture, databases, networking, multimedia, artificial intelligence, and software engineering.

Study in management information systems can include business computer systems and applications, database management and data processing, network management, business decision support systems, and business web development.

Electronics and computer technology study is application-oriented and includes technical content, information, and theory for design, development, and utilization in areas such as electronic circuitry, computer technology, networking, and other related technologies.

A specialized track is selected from courses offered by several ISU academic departments, including art, communications, journalism, geology/geography, and many more.

Advising is an important part of each student’s academic program. Each student works with a program coordinator and an advisor to select a specialization track within the major—and then is assigned to a faculty advisor from the area of specialization. In addition, the information technology major offers students the flexibility to select a minor or pursue specialized academic interests in other areas.

Careers

Information technology graduates will find their generalized skills to be valuable in many occupational areas where computers play a vital role. Graduates may find jobs as programmer analysts or computer technicians.

The specialized track courses reflect the variety of other positions students might expect to find when they graduate. These include Web developer, Web programmer, network specialist, database developer/administrator, digital multimedia specialist, digital communications specialist, and applications developer.
