The Information Technology Certificate (ITC) is a 27 credit hour multidisciplinary program designed for students of any major who aspire to incorporate computer information technology in their specific field. A student will acquire a strong background in problem-solving techniques by completing two computer programming courses designed specifically for non-computer science majors. Most of the courses can be completed either online or in a hybrid setting.

Student Learning Goals

Upon completion of the ITC, students will be capable of the following:

  • understanding, troubleshooting, and managing computing resources
  • deploying technology in industry situations

Admission Requirements

To be accepted into the ITC Program, a student must satisfy IUS admission requirements (see Requirements for Entering Students on page 4 of the 2013-2015 Academic Bulletin). Additionally, two years of high school mathematics or the equivalent score on the math placement test is indispensable. An overall GPA of at least 2.0 is required to be certified.
