INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ELECTIVE: Six credits must be selected from the Information Technology approved list of Technical Electives, which can be obtained from the School of Computer Sciences and Engineering.  The courses must be approved by an academic advisor.  Students can elect to participate in a cooperative educational experience and earn up to three credits.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY CONCENTRATIONS: Students can select one or both of the two concentration areas—Web Development Technology, Network and System Administration. Web Development Technology requires students to take INFO4844:  Programming for the Internet in their 8th semester and Network and System Administration requires students to enroll in INFO4278: Operating Systems in their 6th semester.

MINOR OR CONCENTRATION: Students must either concentrate in a paticular area of information technology or undertake a minor other than information technology. Any concentration area or minor undertaken by the students must be approved first by an adviser. A minimum of 15 credits (from various department approved lists of courses) is required for an area of concentration or a minor..

LABORATORY SCIENCE ELECTIVES: Students are required to complete one full-year laboratory science sequence totaling eight (8) credits from the following courses:  PHYS2101, PHYS2102 General Physics I & II and PHYS2201, PHYS2202 Physics Laboratory I & II; CHEM1201, CHEM1202 General Chemistry I & II and CHEM1203, CHEM 1204 General Chemistry Laboratory I & II; or BIOL1251, BIOL 1252 General Biology I & II and BIOL1253, BIOL1254 General Biology Laboratory I & II.

ETHICAL AND MORAL ANALYSIS: Students must take ENGR3000 Modern Technologies:  Principles, Applications & Impacts to satisfy this requirement.

A minimum of 123 credits is required for graduation.
