Degree Planning

Whether students choose Application Development or Artificial Intelligence, the Bachelor’s degree in Information Systems & Technology prepares graduates for success in a high-demand field in software development.

While the Application Development concentration provides graduates with fundamentals of programming, OOP, design patterns and practices, database applications, web technologies and application environments, including mobile devices and the cloud, Artificial Intelligence is focused on providing graduates with the knowledge and skills to apply statistical algorithms to AI applications, natural language processing and to perform usability testing and evaluate results of human-AI interactions.

Capstone Projects


All Bachelor students will complete a final capstone project in their last two quarter. Capstone gives students the opportunity to apply knowledge and skills learned throughout the program and work in settings relevant to their future employment plans. It also allows students to graduate with a project which can be highlighted on their resume/portfolio for future employers.

If students find an internship in their area of study that meets the qualifications for EXPRL 490/491 this may be taken in place of ISIT 490/491 (capstone classes). The internship must be approved by the program chair prior to starting. For more information on capstone vs. internship options please email the program manager.
