Bachelors of Science in Information Technology with Cybersecurity Track

BS in IT with Cybersecurity Track

The Bachelor of Science in information technology is a broad program of study encompassing all aspects of computing technology. Information technology, as an academic discipline, focuses on meeting the needs of users within organizational and societal contexts through the selection, creation, application, integration and administration of computing technologies. Information technology is a discipline distinct from computer engineering, computer science and management information systems. The students' experience is culminated by the senior design experience - a two-semester exploration developing a real-life IT solution. Students present their senior projects to the community in an IT technology expo at the end of the spring semester of every year.
