College of Information Sciences and Technology

By the Numbers Who we are is just as important as what we do and why we do it. That’s why we bring together students and faculty with diverse experiences, backgrounds, and goals to analyze, create, and innovate in our interdisciplinary programs. Our students pair technical expertise with skills in business and communications, combining this knowledge with the cultural agility to thrive in any setting. We know how technology works. We analyze information to create intelligent action. But most importantly, we integrate these ideas into our human environment to understand how to change our world for the better. It’s who we are.
