What will I learn?

Program Description

The B.S. degree in Computer Information Technology (CIT) is designed for students who are interested in a professional career that involves solving the informational technology infrastructure needs of companies and organizations. An IT professional is able to understand computer systems and solve the computer-related problems of the people they serve. An IT professional assumes responsibility for selecting, installing and maintaining hardware and software products to meet organizational culture and needs. The Computer Information Technology degree consists of a set of core requirements plus a Domain Emphasis Package that is effectively a minor in another field of study. The program focuses on the technology and service aspects of the industry rather than information content. Graduates of the program will have an applied knowledge of such fields as web programming, system infrastructure, databases, networking, e-business, project management, data center management, security and information assurance.

CIT program will be able to: Analyze a complex computing problem and apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions; Design, implement and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline; Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts; Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles; Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline; Identify and analyze user needs and to take them into account in the selection, creation, integration, evaluation and administration of computing-based systems.
