"Become one of the enablers of organizational success; enroll in the UVU IT programs."

"Every organization uses information technology (IT) to perform its operations and stay connected with its clients, suppliers, and the supply chain. IT systems and infrastructure are core enablers for organizations to manage and run the business and the business processes as well as the force to achieve a competitive advantage. The UVU information technology certificate, associate, or bachelor's programs prepare students to plan, install, manage, and maintain the enterprise computing infrastructure on which organizations run. The IT programs allow students to stack the different IT certificates and associate degrees toward the Bachelor of Science in IT. Students will master needed IT skills in computer architecture, data communication, cloud computing, IT project management, information security, and system administration."
