IT Jobs Continue to Increase
IT employment grew by 100,000 jobs in 2014. That number is projected to grow according to the Computing Technology Industry Association. Advanced IT career opportunities are out there. And, they have the salaries to go with them. PayScale.com says the median pay for IT directors is $103,000. The information technology graduate program and certificates at the Edwards Campus are designed to address the education and training needs of software, computing and IT professionals in the Kansas City area.

The Degree
The Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) program, offered through the KU School of Engineering's Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department, provides the ultimate qualification for IT and computing professionals. This degree will deepen graduates’ understanding of IT and computing technologies to advance their careers. The program is designed to:

• develop technical knowledge and managerial skills in IT
• support versatile thinking and confident leadership in IT
• understand the big picture and make strategic IT decisions that address technical and business demands

Work Experience Requirement
Applicants with an undergraduate degree in information technology, computer science, computer information systems, computer engineering, or related discipline are required to have two years of professional work experience in IT. Without an undergraduate degree in a computer-related field, four years of relevant professional work experience in IT is required.

Quality and Convenience
The MSIT program is taught by tenure track KU faculty, all with Ph.D.s, from highly recognized institutions. Classes and student services are offered in the evenings to accommodate working professionals. Because of the busy schedules and frequent travel that many working professionals juggle, this program has online and distance learning options.
