DEPARTMENT UNVEILS NEW NAME: CIT


IMPORTANT NEWS

Dear CIT alumni and friends:


DEPARTMENT
UNVEILS NEW
NAME

ALUMNI OF THE
MONTH

Welcome to a brand new


academic year and as you can see
from my greeting, the big news
of the new year is the departments name change to
Computer and Information
Technology which occurred
during the summer. Acting on the
recommendation of the Information Technology subcommittee of the Deans Industrial Advisory Council, the department
initiated the name change to
more accurately reflect the departments mission as
information technology has
become more recognized in the
marketplace as the umbrella term
for the industry in which we
operate. Furthermore, peer programs such as our Purdue-West

Lafayette counterpart and those


at Rochester Institute of Technology and Brigham Young University have created a special interest group in information technology education SIGITE affiliated
with the Association for Computing Machinery. Several of our
faculty presented papers at the
fourth annual Conference on IT
Curriculum at Purdues West
Lafayette campus in midOctober. Look for CIT to embrace even more of SIGITEs
activities in the future!
Look for the new CIT logo as
we update the CIT Web site at
our new URL: http://
cit.iupui.edu/ and remember our
new e-mail address:
cit@iupui.edu to contact the
department. Also, check out our

CIT events calendar to keep up


with whats going on in the de-

partment. You can always find a


link to the calendar under News
and Events from the department
home page and be aware that you
may also subscribe to the department calendar by clicking on
the Subscribe link in the upper
left-hand corner of the CIT
events calendar so that you will
be notified of additions and
changes to events posted on the
CIT events calendar.

Distance education courses


continue to have major appeal
to our non-traditional students.
Currently, DE courses represent
15% of the total credit hours
offered in the department. Most
of our Web-based courses are
packaged in two Certificate
courses the Information Technology (IT) Certificate and the E1

Commerce Development Certificate. The first Certificate is an


entry point into the development of data driven Web Sites.
The E-Commerce Certificate
pretty much picks up where the
IT Certificate ends. This more
advanced certificate is also
intended for current application
developers who are tying to

make the transition to Webbased development practices.


Students have the option of
pursing either a .NET or Java
approach to Web development.
All of the courses in both programs can be taken totally over
the Web.
