Information Technology

If you are a cadet interested in Information Technology, contact COL Sobiesk or MAJ Harrison.  Also visit our Facebook page West Point (USMA) Information Technology Program.
 
Our Information Technology program responds directly to the growing need of the Army for officers who can rapidly configure and integrate large collections of new equipment and existing systems to meet operational needs. Cadets graduating the program have the necessary skills and experience to lead technologically complex operations at all levels.
 
Ours is one of the finest IT programs in the nation. The Information Technology Program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABEThttp://www.abet.org
 
Offered degrees that are seeking accreditation:
  • Bachelor of Science in Information Technology
  • Bachelor of Science in Information Technology with Honors
  • The Honors degree provides cadets at the top of their year groups the opportunity to excel and be acknowledged for scholarly accomplishments beyond those of the standard program.
     
    Additional degree offering:
  • Bachelor of Science in Electronic and Information Technology Systems (EITS)
  • EITS is a "design your own" technology major for cadets seeking more choice than possible in a major within the Department.
     
    Our laboratory and fabrication facilities are first rate, including our support staff of dedicated professional technicians.
     
    Outside the classroom, many Information Technology majors participate in clubs and activities that are great fun and professionally rewarding. A few examples...
  • Association for Computing Machinery Student Chapter
    Special Interest Group in Security, Audit and Control
    (ASM-SIGSAC)
  • Finally, we sponsor exciting summer opportunities for cadets to apply their knowledge in research and operational settings at locations throughout the world, normally for four to seven week periods.
