The Information Technology (IT) program will educate students to analyze, design, integrate, and manage information systems using information technology.
Program Educational Objectives
The intent of the Information Technology program is to produce graduates who are able to achieve the following objectives:
- Developed a product or process by applying knowledge of programming, web, database, human computer interaction, networking and security tools
- Participated effectively as a member of a development team and undertaken leadership roles when appropriate
- Taken graduate courses or continuing education classes to improve skills and abilities
- Made positive contributions to community and society by applying skills and abilities learned during undergraduate program in information technology
- Made decisions related to work that demonstrate understanding of the importance of being an ethical computing professional
- Applied communication skills to effectively promote ideas, goals or products
Students graduating from our information focused programs will be able to choose many different roles; becoming IT and IS consultants, project planners, project managers, interface designers, information systems researchers, web developers, and systems analysts. To emphasize, consider some of the general tasks that an information technology and systems specialist is likely to perform depending on where she works:
Graduates of the program will have an ability to:
- Analyze a complex computing problem and to 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. [IT]
