CIT PROGRAM


Computer Information Technology (CIT) in its broadest sense encompasses all aspects of computing technology. CIT, as an academic discipline, focuses on meeting the needs of users within an organizational and societal context through the selection, creation, application, integration and administration of computing technologies. The aim is to provide CIT major graduates with the skills and knowledge to take on appropriate professional positions upon graduation and to grow into leadership positions or pursue research or graduate studies in the field. The CIT program also has six minors.
