Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Technology

Graduates of this program are prepared to understand the organization and technology of computers, databases, networking, and other information technologies. Students are introduced to the breadth of technologies and to the basics of the business world. 

Because of the broad technological background this program provides, students are well prepared to enter new technical areas as the field expands and evolves. 

   Students with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Technology should be able to meet all of the outcomes of the associate degree program, as well as:
  • Develop systems that utilize computer networking
  • Understand the requirements for developing and deploying high quality large scale software systems
  • Design, implement, and evaluate a user interface for a computer system
  • Understand the concepts and practice of relational databases
  • Understand the security issues surrounding information technology and the appropriate tools and techniques to safeguard that security
  • Understand the professional, historical and social context of information technology and be able to make reasoned judgments about the social and ethical implications of their actions
In addition, all students must actively participate in the design, development, and evaluation of a sizable software system and present the results of that effort. 

The student, in conjunction with the department chair, may develop a sequence of courses to best meet his or her background and needs that still satisfies the degree requirements. A typical curriculum taken by students is shown below.  

The minimum number of credits required for the degree is 127.
