Master of Information Technology

  • Information Technology, or IT, is the study, design, creation, utilization, support, and management of computer-based information systems, especially software applications and computer hardware. IT is not limited solely to computers though. With technologies quickly developing in the fields of cell phones, PDAs and other handheld devices, the field of IT is quickly moving from compartmentalized computer-focused areas to other forms of mobile technology. In today’s advanced technological environment, the field of IT is very large; those who work in the field are computer hardware and software designers, computer engineers, and specialists who maintain large computer networks and database systems. IT professionals maintain databases for organizations and make sure that they are up to date and run smoothly. They resolve problems with the computers on their network by installing and maintaining the programs that run on them, monitoring overall system health and resolving problems such as computer viruses so that they do not spread quickly and cause network-wide system crashes.This program offers three specializations:

    1. IT Project Management
