Information Technology Minor

As technology advances, many fields have become increasingly computational in nature. Computer hardware and software are the essential tools for not only science and engineering fields, but also business and liberal arts disciplines. We could easily find applications of IT in biology, chemistry, mathematics, marketing, accounting, psychology, history, etc.

The purpose of the IT minor program is to provide non-IT major students an opportunity to gain more computational skills and knowledge in IT. The IT curriculum includes programming, database, network, information system, as well as professional practice and ethics. The elective gives students’ the option to enhance their knowledge in programming languages, security, e-commerce, computer graphics, system analysis and design.

ITEC Minor Requirements

The ITEC Minor requires the completion of 5 ITEC courses with at least 9 credits at 3000/4000 level

Note 1:

For all Business majors, MIS 3100   Management Information Systems (or BUSA 3100   Management Information Systems)- and MGMT 3400 - Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility  are required. These courses are equivalent to ITEC 2201  and ITEC 3900  respectively, but cannot be counted towards the ITEC minor. Therefore, Business majors must select two other ITEC courses for which they meet the prerequisite and co-requisite requirements. One course must be at the 2000 level or above and the other at the 3000 level or above.
