We offer high-quality undergraduate programs that give you the education and support you need to achieve your professional goals. In particular, we offer the following programs:

  • Certificate in Network Administration

  • AS Pre-Major in Information Systems and Technology
  • Bachelor of Science in Information System
  • Bachelor of Science in Information Technology

Individuals who earn a degree from the IS&T Department are highly employable in a wide range of careers, such as Business Intelligence, IT management, and network security. Our graduates work for large and small companies in Utah and across the country. In addition, we offer a Minor in Information Systems and Technology for students who major in other disciplines but want to increase their career opportunities. Computer technology is used in most careers, and a minor in IST provides graduates with additional computer and technology skills.

The B.S. in Information System degree offers three unique emphases to prepare students for a specific niche in rapidly growing IS fields: (1) Business Intelligence Systems, (2) Geographic Information Systems, and (3) Healthcare Information Systems. The Information Systems program is accredited by ABET, which underscores our commitment to providing a quality education that meets rigorous academic standards.

The B.S. in Information Technology degree offers two exciting emphases to prepare students for dynamic careers in IT: (1) Computer Forensics and Security and (2) Network Administration and Security. The department has mapped outcomes to IT courses with a strategy for assessment purposes in preparation for applying for ABET accreditation in the future.

Thank you for your interest in the fields of Information Systems and Technology. It is an exciting time to be a part of the changes and innovative technology in our field. I encourage you to explore our Web site and learn more about the opportunities we have to offer you.
