Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT)

Undergraduate programs > School of IT

Introduction

“Information Technology is the study of systemic approaches to select, develop, apply, integrate, and administer secure computing technologies to enable users to accomplish their personal, organizational, and societal goals.”

The Information Technology (IT) discipline has been defined in ACM IEEE IT Curricula 2017& 2020 Report, as: all aspects of computing and its integration into all aspects of today’s society and digital platform economy. Organizations of every kind are dependent on information technology and computing systems that must work properly and efficiently, be secure, and scale with organizational objectives and customer needs. IT professionals select computing products and services, integrate them to enhance supported environments, and develop, adapt, and manage computing technologies to meet the organization’s goals and business objectives. The IT innovations are the object of study of the information technology discipline. These innovations frame the questions IT professionals and researchers pose and inform the methods and practices by which IT complex problems are solved, and new discoveries are made.

An IT Graduate is defined as:
A collaborative problem solver, skilled practitioner, or applied research investigator who enjoys getting the technology to work effectively and meet user needs in a variety of settings. IT graduates work collaboratively to integrate new technologies in the workplace and community and ensure a superior and productive experience for the user and all the organization’s functions.

IT graduates apply their understandings of system integration, development, and operation, and also deploy, manage IT services and platforms that meet the business goals and objectives of the organization.

In the community, IT graduates use their expertise in implementing a wide range of IT solutions to support community members’ projects and activities. IT graduates are professionals prepared to perform duties in an ethical manner.

The educational outcomes that define the IT graduate profile follow.
1. Analyze complex, real-world problems to identify and define computing requirements and apply
computational approaches to the problem-solving process.
2. Design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements
in the context of the IT discipline.
3. Communicate effectively with diverse audiences the technical information that is consistent with the intended
audience and purpose.
4. Make informed judgments and include unique perspectives of others in computing practice based on legal
and ethical principles.
5. Function effectively on teams and employ self- and peer-advocacy to address bias in interactions, establish
goals, plan tasks, meet deadlines, manage risk, and produce deliverables.
6. Identify and analyze user needs and consider them during the selection, integration, and administration of
computer-based systems.
