Information Technology at the University of Cincinnati
Information Technology is an academic discipline distinct from computer engineering, computer science and management information systems. IT encompasses software engineering and development, computer networking and communications, Web technologies, computer security, database management, and digital media technologies. The Information Technology professional is hired by organizations of all sizes in all industries. Students will receive a broad education across the IT spectrum as well as technical specialization in the areas of their choice.
The IT degree is offered in both the day and evening schedules. Students will choose a primary track specialization within IT (Software Application Development or Networking) and BS students will also choose a secondary track specialization (Software Application Development, Networking, or Database). The Co-op experience is a vital part of the IT curriculum; all students will work as a student professional in alternating semesters starting in their second year of study. BS students will co-op five semesters. In addition to co-op, students learn by experience through the integration of intensive, hands-on activities built into the courses and through the Senior Design project completed in the final year of study.
