Computer Technology and Information Systems


Computer Technology and Information Systems is an interdisciplinary major that prepares students in the specialized areas of 1) Computer Networks and Cybersecurity, 2) Web Design and Programming Languages for Applications. Starting from a solid foundation in business and computer science concepts, students learn to appreciate and understand the relationships between these two disciplines and the application of computer technology systems in business. The major prepares students to design and implement information decision support systems; hence, they can fill management, planning, and decision-making roles within any organization. In addition, the emphasis areas will further enable students to fill positions that require specialized skills in various computer technology areas. This major also prepares students for graduate studies in business, information systems, technology, or other related fields. Cybersecurity Emphasis: While data is increasingly providing a wealth of information and insight to corporations at their fingertips, it is also becoming detrimental in the wrong hands. With progressively more information traveling over the wires, the need for protection is greater now than ever before. This new track will therefore not only help prepare our graduates with the skills required to work in data security, but also help to narrow the skill shortage gap as being currently experienced in the industry.

Total Credit Hours Required in Major (Depending on Emphasis Area): 54 – 56 Credit Hours


Total Credit Hours Required in Degree: 121
