These goals can be met with considerable interdisciplinary integration in order to expose students to the cognitive, social, institutional, and global environments of information sciences and technology. Through the choice of various options, students can learn the skills necessary to develop advanced information technology systems using state-of-the-art tools and techniques, and to use information technology to realize a variety of system-based goals.
