The new undergraduate programs in Information Science and Technology (IS&T) offered by the Computer and Information Science (C+IN SC) Department are intended to provide students with both a detailed knowledge and a broad background in the technology of information systems. Fundamental concepts in mathematics, programming, object-oriented modeling, databases, software systems analysis and design, computer-operating systems and architectures, and networks and communications are stressed in the first two years.  Special topics, including component-based software development and net-centric and client-server computing, are offered as part of the last two years of the program.  A two-semester capstone project course is required.  This course is designed to help students integrate what they have learned in other courses and apply this knowledge in the design and implementation of a software application. 

Students develop the skills and the knowledge necessary to analyze information problems and to apply current technology to their solution.  The emphasis is to develop problem-solving and communication skills.  Substantial laboratory work is required.  Students participate individually and in groups in the design, development, testing and documentation of information systems for a university or an external client.
