Fall 2015 will bring some changes to the ITM curriculum. ITMD 461, Internet Technologies and Web Design will be replaced by ITMD 361, Fundamentals of Web Development. The content of the course is essentially unchanged, but the new title and course description reflects the fact that the extended discussions of Internet technologies and design that were originally included in the course are no longer covered. The design component will move to another new course, ITMD 362, Human-Computer Interaction and Web Design, which will replace ITMD 434, Human-Computer Interaction. This restores the Web design component formerly included in ITMD 461, moves the HCI component formerly in ITMD 434 from a full semester to 9 weeks, and allows students to apply their new HCI knowledge through hands-on project-based learning. The first offering of ITMD 362 is planned for Spring 2016.
Additionally two new minors are offered in ITM to prepare students in other majors to be admitted to our graduate programs. The Information Technology Foundations minor prepares students to enter the Master of Information Technology and Management degree, and the Cyber Security Foundations minor will prepare students to enter the Master of Cyber Forensics and Security degree. The existing minor in Information System Administration has had a major revision to incorporate current courses and is now one of our strongest minors. Let your friends in other majors know about these!
