The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (B.S. of I.T.) is a degree program with two concentrations in Cybersecurity and Data Analytics. The B.S. of I.T. offers our prospective students’ opportunities to learn and experience both the businesses and technical aspects of Cybersecurity and Data Analytics and how their alignments create business opportunities and problems. The Cybersecurity concentration will provide opportunities for our students to acquire hands-on experiences and will include some of the high demand skillsets such as computer security, cyber defense and countermeasures, forensics and regulatory compliance. The Data Analytics concentration will provide opportunities in scientific data analysis and visualization, predictive analysis, prescriptive modeling and optimization, simulation, data-mining and classification.
