Students entering the IT field can expect to be in high demand upon graduation. Positions like network architect, computer systems analyst, database administrator and systems manager are expected to grow much faster than the national average. Well-qualified systems specialists also enjoy very good prospects for advancement, as many businesses have a hard time finding qualified applicants in this rapidly growing field.

What You'll Learn

  • Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  • Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors;
