Hear first-hand about the experiences of our Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Faculty Members and Students

We are bringing people from the industry into the classroom so that our students learn more. Stamford is a truly international university, so students have the opportunity to learn in a multicultural environment. One of Stamford’s strengths is that we engage students in an ‘interactive classroom’ – a philosophy that is applied to everything that we do. We share ideas and thoughts -- holistic learning develops during class discussions.

Dr. Samson, Lecturer

I’m sure I’ve chosen the right field of study and the right university. Stamford offers the IT program that I love, in a great environment, with friendly teachers, and scholarships. The most important thing is – I’m doing what I love. It took me some times to realize that I love IT. But it is worth spending time trying to find what you love, then go for it the best you can. At Stamford, if you study hard enough, and give respect to your teachers, everybody can achieve their goals -- anybody can be Einstein.I used to think there was too much homework, but then, I saw the work it was for the teachers grading my assignments. I realized, the more assignments they gave us, the more work they had to grade they evaluated every single piece of work we submitted, every single line of the code we wrote. They have become my role models. I appreciate their hard work, and I want to do the same.

Ms. Kay, IT Student

Our new concentration in Business Information Technology fills the gap between IT knowledge and business knowledge bridging the relationship between them; whereas our concentration in Information Technology focuses on programming and network architecture. Students can choose which areas are suitable for their capabilities and interests – but no matter what they decide, we are here to support them throughout their program of choice. We offer a supportive learning environment.
