Why Study Computer Information Technology at Elms College?

In the Computer Information Technology (CIT) major, students explore many topics to become technology professionals. Our classes include computer programming, web design and programming, networking, computer security, database design, game design, as well as cutting edge topics such as mobile web and app development and digital forensics.   Our flexible curriculum requirements allow students to choose course electives according to their interests, for example programming, web development, game design, or computer security and forensics. An internship and a senior capstone portfolio course are required.

All of our classes are taught in our state of the art computer lab with a teaching style that is applied, interactive, and hands-on. Class sizes are small with 10-17 students per class.

Students interested in majoring in CIT are invited to apply to the ElmSTEMs scholarship program and to attend our next STEM Day workshops on campus on Dec. 5th.
