Bachelor of Science in Information Science and Technology




What will I learn?

Students in the Information Science and Technology (IS&T) curriculum develop the skills and the knowledge necessary to analyze information problems and to apply current technology to their solution. The emphasis is to develop problem-solving and communication skills.

The technologies and methods include databases, web and mobile application development, client-server computing, network security, project management, software engineering principles, and quality assurance methodologies. A two-semester capstone project course is required. This course is designed to help students integrate what they have learned in other courses and apply this knowledge in the design and implementation of a software application. The B.S. program gives students the further opportunity to explore their interests in the variety of electives available to them.

The program is targeted for students who have a strong interest in applying computing technologies to solving problems in business, education, science, and government agencies. Our IS&T graduates are also involved in innovative product developments. They hold jobs as consultants, network engineers, business and systems analysts, database administrators, and web and application developers.
