Protecting information on computers, intranet, and data storage is the job of those who work in IT departments. A degree in information technology will help students be able to perform various tasks within the department including troubleshooting, monitoring current security systems, developing new security systems, and assigning individual log in names and numbers to all employees. Tracking these names and numbers is another task that those who work in the IT department are responsible for.
Courses include computer programming, troubleshooting and maintenance, information security development, data analysis, and project management. Students will be able to find employment in both large and small companies. As technology continues to change, new security systems will be needed in order to maintain a secure network for company employees to work on. As companies expand into the global marketing place, additional security will be needed also.
