Information Technology

Undergraduate Program

Information Technology (IT) is an evolving interdisciplinary subject that has been driven and shaped by the rapid development of computing, communication, and Internet‐related technologies and their tremendous impact on our daily lives. In contrast to the more traditional Information Systems discipline, Information Technology deals with the development, utilization, interrelation, and confluence of computers, networking, telecommunication, business, and technology management in the context of the global Internet. As we enter the Information Age of the 21st century, society will be increasingly dependent on Information Technology and demand for IT professionals will remain high throughout the decades to come.
