Information Technology

Our students perfectly blend information technology with computer science, management and communications, able to solve complex computing problems and communicate the results.

Student working at a computer

Technology is constantly developing and evolving, presenting new challenges and opportunities

Through hands-on class projects you'll learn vital skills — like modern programming languages, database management and web applications — and hone your quantitative skills. Within the Information Technology major you'll have the opportunity to choose the Business track, the Simmons University Center for Cybersecurity Academic Excellence track, or the Health Informatics track.

As an information technologist, you'll determine user needs and develop, manage, and support technology-based solutions. Our students are well prepared for careers as web developers, web administrators, IT consultants, network supporters, system integrators, system analysts and application developers.

You'll work with a faculty advisor to tailor your program to your interests and career goals. The Computer Science and Informatics Program offers many closely-related programs — such as web design & development and computer science — as well as the 3+1 Computer Science/M.S. in Library and Information Science.

So you know that Simmons is a great place to be, you've learned about our programs, maybe even come for a visit...now you're ready to apply! Let's get started.
