Get the hands-on, problem-solving skills needed to get started in a variety of computer fields. Computer Information Technology (CIT) is a unique program that aims to train students to be technical experts in various computing technologies including database, network administration, web technology, and security. Graduates will be IT specialists responsible for planning, deployment, administration, and configuration of computing infrastructures for organizations.

The B.S. in Computer Information Technology program requires a total of 120 units, including General Education requirements, major core courses and a 15-unit sequence of elective courses referred to below as the Domain Emphasis Package. To graduate, a student must complete a minimum of 18 residency units from the list of upper division required courses listed below in addition to all other institutional residency requirements.

Students have access to modern computing facilities. A large internal network provides access to the Internet and offers an extensive variety of software, some of which is available at minimal cost to students through the department-sponsored Microsoft Imagine program, other vendor agreements and from software supplied under the BYOD technology program.

As technology continues its speed-of-light evolution in commerce and culture, the theft and corruption of information expands as well. UAT’s Network Security degree prepares students to design networks using diagrams and documentation that secures cyber communication within an organization and throughout the outside world. Students with this cyber security degree develop a comprehensive understanding of how to create, maintain and defend secure networks.

Designed to create the next generation of “white hat” innovators, this Cyber Security degree provides the tools and develops the skills necessary to transport information security degree graduates to the leading edge of the industry. Software developers apply computer science, engineering, and math to design, develop, and test software. These MSCS programs focus on building an even more extensive and robust set of skills, as compared to a student’s undergraduate program.
