Minor in Computing and Information Technology


The objective of the CIT minor is to satisfy the needs of the intelligent and responsible application of computing and information technologies to majors in fields which would not have Computer Science or Computing Engineering as their fundamental and exclusive basic orientation, but would want to benefit from the products of applications of the latter two disciplines and their proper use. The minor provides a conceptual foundation as well a practical application of various Computing and Information Technology skills.
