The newest offering of the College of Computer Studies. Bachelor of Science in Information Technology is another subset of computer science. It encompasses all aspects of computing technology. As an academic discipline, it is concerned with issues related to advocating for users and meeting their needs within an organizational and societal context through the selection, creation, application, integration and administration of computing technologies. This discipline prepares students to meet the computer technology needs of business, government, healthcare, schools and other kinds of organizations. 

Information Systems focuses on the information aspects of IT. Information Technology is the complement of that perspective: its emphasis is on the technology itself more than the information it conveys. IT specialists assume responsibility for selecting hardware and software products appropriate for an organization, integrating those products with organizational needs and infrastructure, and installing, customizing, and maintaining those applications for the organization's computer users. Examples of these responsibilities are the installation of networks, network administration and security, the design of web pages, the development of multimedia resources, the installation of communication components, the oversight of email systems, and the planning and management of the technology life cycle by which an organization's technology is maintained, upgraded and replaced. (ACM IT Curriculum, 2008)

Students are required to undergo practicum for 486 hours or one semester. They are also required to submit and defend 2 capstone projects (proposal and final).
