Program Overview

Students learn to apply IT to support business processes. The minor equips graduates with strong problem-solving, writing, and communication skills. There is virtually no business or organization that doesn't rely on IT, whether it's analysis, programming, software testing or consultancy, to name just a few of the options open to you.


The minor is designed primarily for non-Volgenau School of Engineering majors who desire to supplement the knowledge gained through their major-related courses with a foundation of information technology (IT) topics. Completing this minor provides students with the necessary skills to improve their attractiveness to employers in our technology-driven society.
