The Information Technologies concentration focuses on how technology can be used, designed, and managed to support effective decision-making.
Students are first introduced to computer algorithms and data structures, networks, and integrated information systems. The subject matter then expands to include the managerial, organizational, and social issues associated with the design, implementation, and evaluation of information technologies.
