“Studying nanotechnology in Australia was the best experience I’ve ever had. It allowed me to learn other cultures and make friends with people who were from Germany, China, Switzerland, and South Africa. It was an amazing experience to network and develop those relationships.”

Information Technology Curriculum
The Information Technology major is designed to provide students with a broad knowledge base utilizing various technologies such as database, networking, business applications, programming and the production of web pages. Students will learn the theories and processes inherent in technology that are necessary to successfully meet their personal and professional challenges. Students may decide to manage networks, design and oversee databases, develop web pages, provide help desk support, design and produce software (including Smartphone software) or own their own small businesses. The Information Technology major is also a perfect complement to a minor in a variety of disciplines to enable the students to understand the interrelatedness of various fields of study. Some recommended minors include: Business Management, Design or Communication.
The final component of the major will be the Senior Seminar; where students complete an integrated project, which will
showcase their knowledge of technology across multiple areas. The project can be used as a career search tool where students can exhibit their distinct technology abilities and how they relate to a professional setting. The project requirement
will include writing, and technical skills samples, as well as a self-reflection component.

Like many high school kids, Ivan Marchany '16 was very much into video games. But little did he realize that his boyhood hobby would turn into a career path in cyber-security. Because of a learning difference, Ivan's college search led him from his home in Puerto Rico to the Curry College PAL program, where he has thrived academically as an IT major, turning his once-perceived weaknesses into strengths.

Shawn Edge '08 was always that neighborhood kid who got called over to a friend's house to set up a VCR or troubleshoot on the computer. By the time he started his college search a dozen years later, he knew he wanted to major in information technology and gain hands-on practical experience, and the Curry College program seemed like a perfect fit.
