The goal of our programs is to prepare the 21st century information professional to manage the complexities of the information age. As the name implies, we have developed curriculum as part of our new academic minor in Global Enterprise Technology to help students thrive in a complex computing environment. The “G” in Global prepares students to be world citizens and to manage attitude, language, time zone, geography, political and monetary issues. Students can experience Asia and Europe by taking two-week traveling seminars called AsiaTech and EuroTech. The “E” in Enterprise emphasizes the complexity and scale of the large-complex organizations. Students take coursework that allows them to solve problems that only exist in very large organizations. In addition to coursework the students can participate in the Immersion Experience, an extended internship program coupled with coursework, experiencing first-hand what it is like to work in a large enterprise. The “T” represents the emphasis on technology. Students get to work on the most modern and sophisticated computing systems in the world. Coursework includes hands experience on enterprise-class mainframe servers, fault-tolerant operating systems and virtualized computing environments where high-availability, high-reliability and high security are the hallmarks of the enterprise technology solutions.
