The mission of the La Salle’s Information Technology (IT) program extends the University’s mission with an emphasis on the success of its students. IT students establish a foundation aware of theoretical IT paradigms coupled with current IT practices. This groundwork will provide a basis of continued learning in this dynamic, emerging field. Students analyze technological problems, design team-based solutions to real-world problems, and develop communication plans for both IT experts and non-experts. Students are encouraged to complete internships as well as participate in industry-based research opportunities to understand the broad application of technology within society. Students completing this program are prepared to continue as IT industry professionals and researchers.
