The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) of KU's School of Engineering introduced its exciting new undergraduate degree, Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT), for the KU Edwards Campus in 2012 to address the IT needs of industrial and governmental organizations in Johnson Country and the Greater Kansas City metropolitan area.
The BSIT program focuses on technology, managerial, and administrative sides of information technology and its curriculum offers courses in computer information security, systems administration, Web systems and technologies, information security management, software development, computer networks, database design, human-computer interaction, project management, system architecture and integration, operating systems, social and professional issues in IT, network security, and such. The BSIT curriculum is based on the ACM/IEEE-CS Curriculum Guidelines for Undergraduate Program in Information Technology; the program was reviewed for accreditation by ABET in fall 2015; the review result will be officially announced in fall 2016.
The BSIT program was developed in cooperation with the Johnson County Community College (JCCC) and with a unique partnership with the Johnson Country Education Research Triangle (JCERT). The joint goal is to create economic stimulus and a higher quality of life in Johnson County through new facilities and educational opportunities.
