You have probably enjoyed technology most of your life, and you've probably also become your family's go-to guy or gal when it comes to fixing things. With a degree in Integrated Information Technology, you will learn how to find solutions that improve any company's efficiency and increase revenue. You will also become a great communicator, prepared to lead teams and projects, positioning you as an essential member of any business team.
Roles and Responsibilities
You would be hard-pressed to find a successful business in today's society that isn't supported by technology professionals in key roles ⎯ network systems analyst, software training specialist, database designers and managers, webmaster, e-commerce consultant, communications supervisor, systems analyst... and the list goes on and on.
Companies have become increasingly more dependent on information technology professionals whose knowledge extends beyond the software and hardware that is being used. They need innovators who can apply the technology in creative ways to improve business. They need you to be the ultimate problem-solver.
Technology, perhaps more so than many other areas of study, can only be mastered by actually "doing." That's why we think it's so important for all of our students to participate in one internship, completed during your junior or senior year.
The type of internship experience is dependent upon your career goals. For example, students who are interested in network administration are encouraged to seek an internship in a networking position. Ultimately, completing your internship will enable you to experience both the technical and professional aspects of a business.
There are two degree programs offered through the Integrated Information Technology program, an undergraduate degree and a master's degree that focuses on Health Information Technology. An Integrated Information Technology minor is also available.
