The Information Communication Technology (ICT) program is designed to educate students to assume leadership roles where the application of information technology (IT) is concerned, with the ultimate goal of equipping students with the tools and soft skills necessary for articulating technology solutions to clients, organizations, and communities. ICT majors will also build expertise in either the technology management or commercialization emphasis area. T
he program’s concentration on the human-centered approach to technology teaches students how to be effective users of technology, solve problems specifically related to information and communication, and to facilitate communicating information in meaningful ways. In general, ICT majors are exposed to issues involving information, policy and regulation, and the role of communication technologies in western societies and the developing world.
Graduates are prepared for jobs as desktop support technicians, information security analysts, front-end developers, systems administrators, project managers, and social media managers, to name a few.
Students are encouraged to get involved in extracurricular opportunities within the program, such as education abroad, the ICT Student Association (ICTSA), undergraduate research, independent studies, app development workshops, and professional networking events. ICT majors are required to complete one technology-oriented internship. Our robust professional internship program is a great resource for students who are eager to expand their undergraduate course work and gain hands-on experience in the field.
