Chair's Welcome

Welcome to the Department of Computer Information and Graphics Technology (CIGT).

Housed within CIGT, you will find degree and certificate programs in Computer and Information Technology (CIT), Computer Graphics Technology, and an interdisciplinary graduate program offered through the School of Engineering and Technology’s Master of Science in Technology degree.

Our department partners two dynamic computer-related programs, bringing together talented faculty who continue to develop new partnerships to create innovative and creative opportunities for teaching and learning both on and off campus.

Both programs are accredited by the Computing Accreditation Committee (CAC) of ABET, Inc., a process involving voluntary review to ensure the CGT and CIT programs meet established quality standards. By participating in ABET, Inc. accreditation, we focus on continuous quality improvement, a hallmark of all successful organizations.

In CIGT, we believe in learning by doing and encourage our students to RISE to the Challenge through research, international, service and experiential learning. CIT’s Living Lab, CGT’s Study Abroad Program in Poland, and CIT’s Study Abroad Program in India are just a few of the opportunities for students to RISE to the Challenge. For more opportunities, see RISE Challenge for CIGT Students.

As a CIGT student, graduate, or industrial partner; you are an integral part of tomorrow’s computer technology community. Technical skills and professional competencies continue to make our graduates distinctive, unique, and highly marketable in meeting the needs of employers today.

On behalf of the CIGT faculty and staff, I welcome you to our website. Explore, learn, and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about our undergraduate or graduate opportunities.

I am proud to lead the faculty and staff of CIGT and hope that you will become part of our journey through computer information and graphics technology.
