Online Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Degree
Which degree are you most interested in?
The Bachelor of Science in information technology provides you with the expertise to design, select, implement and administer computer-based information solutions.
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 within a cybersecure environment. Graduates have the ability to: create network architectures within a cybersecure infrastructure, configure and administer complex computer and database systems; evaluate networks using cybersecure tools and techniques; 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.
