The bachelor of science in information and computer technology, accredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering, prepares students for a career in information technology, computer networking, systems administration, cyber security, and technical management. Course work provides a sound base of information technology fundamentals and advanced work in internet working and client-server information systems. Much of the curricula is based on formal academy or curricular alliances with industry partners. Opportunities for industrial certifications with these companies are built into the curriculum.
The required courses also include foundational skills in supervision and management to prepare students to lead and work in teams, and to provide a platform for career advancement into leadership positions.
Students are required to have an internship and to complete a two-semester professional capstone project. Additional opportunities to obtain further industry experience through co-op positions, course-based projects in the program, and by graduating with extra credentials, such as a minor in business administration are available.
