Design and Development Option
You’ll design software applications and integrate information technologies to meet a specific need, and work on projects like developing applications for iPhones.
Integration and Application
This option examines how information technology can enable and support processes within and between businesses. You’ll analyze the needs of an organization, formulate and
implement technology-based solutions, and evaluate the outcomes, working on projects like designing a software
application to store genetic info used by researchers.
People, Organizations, and Society
You’ll study how businesses and other organizations use information technologies—such as how Starbucks uses Twitter and other social media to promote its brand. You are encouraged to think creatively and pursue opportunities that will allow you to see firsthand how people, information, and technology interact.
Information and Cyber Security
You’ll learn how to deal with security and privacy concerns in all types of organizations, and make sure that computer operating systems and related products are secure. For example, you’ll learn how to effectively “police” the area of cyberspace your employer occupies to ensure that it is free from cyber crime.
Social Factors and Risk
In this option, you’ll explore the psychological, sociological, and legal
aspects of security and risk, and examine the privacy policies and legal regulations within companies and the government. In the classroom, you’ll work on teams in which you and your classmates role-play both terrorists and criminals, and the intelligence and security officers combating them.
Intelligence Analysis and Modeling
You’ll learn how to calculate, evaluate, and predict risk in a variety of fields, including business and national security, and work on projects like evaluating the risk of putting information on Facebook. To enter this option, you should be able to think critically and have an interest in learning how to protect vital infrastructure against subversive attacks.
