The MIT Sloan Information Technology Group researches the economic, social, and organizational implications of the digital technologies that transform the way we live and work. Information technology has not always alluded to computers, but referred to the oldest information processor, which is the brain. Project management software can assist in developing schedules, communicating information, tracking progress, etc. Managing information has never been more important and information technology professionals are in demand.
Your grade in the ITEC 291 course is based upon information obtained from your employer’s final evaluation, and the interim evaluation by the IT Co-Op coordinator. Where computer science improved my technical proficiency, information technology gave me the understanding I need to apply it practically.
Taking formal classes through a university is the traditional way to get a degree. From smart phone software applications to database of prospective clients, information is a commodity that has a wide range of value depending on the practical use. The Centre is supported by a skilled team, with the resources, technology and methodologies to ensure every client receives customised solutions for their products.
Through the use of high technology in the form of state of the art computers and software systems, communication is well managed. If certain functional managers are not responding to project managers’ requests for necessary information, top management must step in to encourage the functional managers to cooperate.
Top management commitment is the number one factor associated with the success of information technology projects, so it’s very important to get and maintain this support. There is significant industry input and opportunities for industry placements and internships.
