Information Technology: Network Administration, B.TECH., Major #1505

Enterprises need information to create competitive advantages in today’s dynamic business environment. Business people require tools like the Internet, the World Wide Web, laptops, smart phones, cloud computing, wireless technology, multimedia, social media, and e-commerce. Typically, business people do not need to understand how the technology works; they simply want it to do the job for them. Information Technology (IT) builds on the foundation of Computer Information Systems, but it has a broader scope. IT seeks to facilitate the business processes of the organization. The information technologist not only knows how technology work but is equally interested in people and their applied use of technology to increase productivity. Your educational experience will be supported by a robust information technology infrastructure. Students receive practical hands-on experience in their field of study using the latest network technologies in a top-notch academic lab environment. These systems support the latest software applications for gaming, graphics, animation, web development, video production, databases, voice and data communications, programming, server administration, multimedia development, virtualization, cloud computing, and information security.
