Want to be the individual who is responsible for designing, selecting, implementing, and managing computer-based information solutions? The information technology graduate can design and create effective solutions to today’s knowledge-based problems. Graduates have the ability to: create network architectures within a secure infrastructure, configure and administer complex computer and database systems; and, design and process interactive information management solutions, including big data applications. Students will create a project solution most every semester and hone team and presentation skills. In addition to selecting a primary focus area, (networking and security, information management, or enterprise computing) students will be able to spend the last two semesters developing and demonstrating a project-based solution to an information technology centric challenge.
Once you begin upper division courses, you will select six courses from one of three available tracks: (1) Networking and Computer System Security: Network Security and Administration, which includes courses such as Internet Networking Architecture and Control, Security Architecture, and Socket Programming; (2) Information Systems: Information systems includes SQL programming, Database Architectures including Big Data, and API programming; and (3) Enterprise Computing: Internet structures within the Enterprise and managing Enterprise development.
