Masters in Information Communication Technology overview
What You'll Learn
ICT students gain knowledge and skills needed to effectively apply, use and manage technology when solving problems specifically related to information and communication. Classes provide a human and organizational focus on technology–teaching students how to be effective users of technology. Students who major in ICT can expect to work in positions where they are the communication link between people, organizations and the technologies used to support those organizations’ information infrastructures.
All information communication technology majors are required to complete a credit-bearing internship before graduation. An ICT 399 internship aims to provide students an opportunity to participate in services that are part of a professional ICT program. This is accomplished through supervised work-and-learning experience in a professional environment under the direction of a University faculty member and an employee of a participating firm. We are here to help you apply for internships and we want to help you succeed in whatever endeavors you choose to pursue!
