Applied Computing Technology

The undergraduate curriculum provides students with a background in computer programming, business principles and computer systems and applications. This program allows maximum flexibility in preparation for a career in industrial information technology, entering professional schools such as law, medicine, or accounting, or preparation for graduate school in computer science or fields where computer science is helpful. This list is suggestive and not exhaustive since new applications for computers occur every day.

There is much leeway in terms of free electives for students in their junior and senior years in computing technology to choose a collection of courses in the form of a second major or minor or coherent focus area tailored to their interests. Students are encouraged to consider other subject matters to combine with their knowledge of computing technology. Opportunities exist to pursue independent research projects under faculty supervision. Students are encouraged to begin such research early in their upper division studies.
