Bachelor of Information Technology

Program Requirements

Transfer students are expected to take 66 credit hours at Illinois Institute of Technology and transfer 61 credit hours to complete the bachelor’s degree for a total of 127 credit hours. This includes 16 information technology courses for a total of 48 credit hours in the major. An additional 18 credit hours outside the major must be taken at Illinois Institute of Technology in order to satisfy the remaining Core Curriculum requirements. These include four 300/400-level humanities and social or behavioral science electives and two IPRO courses. Two social or behavioral science electives must be from the same field and one must be from a different field; lower level social or behavioral science electives count towards this requirement. The computer science general education requirement may be satisfied by completion of ITM 311. Students who wish to complete their undergraduate studies in less than five semesters of full-time study at Illinois Institute of Technology are strongly urged to include at least nine credit hours of courses transferable as required or elective ITM courses among their free or technical electives.

All students must complete a minimum of 36 credit hours of courses with a significant written and oral communication component, identified with a (C) in the bulletin; 12 credit hours of (C)-coded courses must be taken in the major.
A maximum of nine credit hours of ITM graduate courses taken as an undergraduate may be applied to the Master of Information Technology and Management degree, and any graduate courses taken to fulfill undergraduate degree requirements may not also be applied to a graduate degree unless the student is enrolled in a co-terminal or accelerated master’s degree program.
