Today’s businesses demand professionals who understand information technology, are comfortable in a digital environment and can synthesize, analyze and learn from vast amounts of information. Our graduates are prepared to deliver.

Although information science and technology is a computer-focused degree, as a graduate of the program, you’ll spend most of your day working with customers, not machines.

Our IST graduates hold managerial positions at tech companies, test software for user compatibility, manage networking, and design and implement web applications.

With this degree you can work in

Business operations, computer networks, e-commerce, entrepreneurship, human-computer interaction, multimedia systems, marketing, software systems or telecommunications.
