UMUC's Master of Science in Information Technology Program is designed for those who are called upon to develop, implement, and operate information systems in a variety of organizations. Graduates of the this program will have a broad technical understanding of current and emerging technologies in the IT field, a familiarity with systems engineering concepts and a solid foundation in the technological basis of the Internet. They will also have a firm grasp of current and future effects of the convergence of computer systems and telecommunications systems technologies.
The Informatics specialization has a decidedly technical thrust and is oriented towards the student seeking a generalist's view of IT. It offers a broadly based and strongly quantitative grounding in the various facets of information theory and best practices for developing a variety of systems and program products. Students receive an introduction to the major categories of IT endeavor, including networking, security, software development, databases, web design, and IT acquisitions in order to be well prepared for the challenges of the Second Millennium workplace. The IMAT specialization also serves as a logical extension of coursework begun in programs offered at UMUC military sites.
