Most organizations, whether for-profit or not-for-profit, use information technology to meet their operational and strategic needs. The Master of Science in Applied Information Technology (MAIT) program is designed to prepare students for a career in IT by providing a wide range of technical, administrative, and interpersonal skills expected of successful IT professionals.
A cohort model is employed in which all students take the same courses each semester thereby progressing through the entire program together. This has been found to facilitate a number of program outcomes more effectively than a non-cohort model.
The program consists of 36 graduate semester hours plus one 3 hr introductory prerequisite course for those students who do not have a computer oriented undergraduate degree or significant IT experience. The student can choose to specialize in one of three specialties offered by the MAIT program. In addition to core courses in technology, administration and management, and communication, the student can choose 4 courses with specialties in corporate IT, computer security, or web development.
