Here are some IT degree highlights:

  • The BSIT provides a unique undergraduate curriculum focused on enhancing the ability to employ information technology for strategic advantage through an integrated study of core technology concepts and skills
  • The MSIT focuses on preparing information technology (IT) professionals to optimize IT management in support of business strategies and goals
