Explore Innovation as a Career
The Information Technology Program is for tech-minded thinkers interested in working with emerging technologies as solutions to tomorrow’s challenges. Our students delve deeply into traditional IT fields such as programming languages, software engineering, cyber security, mobile and web application development, and networking, while exploring innovative integrations of autonomous systems, media post-production and processing, visual effects and modeling, and digital environment creation.
Our faculty practice what they teach by engaging in all aspects of industry and academics. From software engineers and cybersecurity specialists, to content creators, web developers, and virtual reality visionaries, our faculty engage and collaborate with industry partners and cross-campus researchers at a world-class institution in an effort to provide students with an all-encompassing degree that caters to their interest. Develop skills employers seek today, and build the solutions to tomorrow’s challenges.
