Business Information Systems

In the Computer Information Technology (CIT) program, applications are given more emphasis than formal properties. The student acquires a systematic body of knowledge with respect to business problems and their solutions. Emphasis is given to business information systems, network administration, service support, system administration, and web based systems. Students should note that, although the introductory sequence in the curriculum is programming, information technology involves much more than programming. The CIT program prepares the student for work in the business arena.

The Business Information Systems concentration prepares students for work in companies where business skills, computer technology, and management information systems intersect. Graduates with this concentration will work with (or produce) computer-based information systems.
