To stop today’s high-tech criminals and terrorists, we need the very best information technology—from computers and laptops to software and servers. Recognizing that computer systems and software technology are now integral to organizations of virtually any size, the degree program in information technology is designed to provide the student with broad knowledge and skills in existing information technologies, in new and emerging technologies (and the application and integration of these technologies), and in the administrative practices used in the effective management of these technologies.
In these classes you’ll develop an understanding of infrastructure technology, planning and management and develop ways to understand systems and implement technical programs including e-commerce, data systems and mobile applications. IT includes several layers of physical equipment ( hardware ), virtualization and management or automation tools, operating systems and applications ( software ) used to perform essential functions. The good news is that correcting such cultural, institutional and unconscious biases is not all that difficult.
The term information technology was coined by the Harvard Business Review, in order to make a distinction between purpose-built machines designed to perform a limited scope of functions and general-purpose computing machines that could be programmed for various tasks.
The IT Customer Relationship and Management Division (ITCRMD) provides leadership and management of IT programs and projects through capital planning, contracts and acquisitions, governance, and transitions for the effective delivery of IT products and services that meet mission needs through assessments, policy, standardization, and performance metrics.
High-speed Networks, Next G Wireless, Future Internet, Big Data, Computer Vision, Gaming, Mobile and WEB apps, Social Networks, Security Technologies and Innovation Management are only some of the areas, where AIT’s professors and researchers perform top quality research.
