Major in Computer Technology (BA/BS)

79 credits

The computer technology program transforms students into technology leaders in a sustainable global economy.

This is achieved by presenting students with a strong foundation in the concepts, theories, and practices that serve as the basis for the varying aspects of information technology. This includes the design, implementation, and administration of secured systems and networks. Students then have the opportunity to develop expertise in specialty areas of interest through electives in higher level technology courses.

Since the purpose of information technology is to facilitate the goals and objectives of a business or organization, students are required to complete the Minor in Business Administration for Computer Technology. With an understanding of how organizations operate, students will be able to more effectively design systems and networks that will support the needs of the business or organization.
