The Database and Data Assurance concentration is designed to focus on data as an essential organizational resource. Students in this concentration study effective and efficient means of storing and manipulating data electronically. They typically attain jobs in database management, information security, or database administration.
A minor in mathematics is recommended for this concentration.
The IT Management concentration is intended for those who want to approach computing from the business applications perspective. These are knowledge workers who focus on how organizations can better utilize information technology rather than on the technology itself; therefore, a minor in business is recommended for this concentration.
The Network Applications concentration is designed for those seeking careers in the expanding information technology field who do not wish to follow the traditional computer science curriculum with its emphasis on mathematics and computing systems theory. These individuals often get jobs in emerging areas such as electronic commerce, web design, tech support, software training, and systems integration. They may also pursue careers in more established roles such as business analyst or applications programmer.
A minor in mathematics or business is recommended for the network applications concentration.
