Why pursue an ­­­­­M.S. in Information Technology at UTSA?

The Master of Science in Information Technology program is designed to provide information systems and information technology professionals with essential technical and business skills necessary to become a cyber professional. The Information Technology - Cyber Security program of The University of Texas at San Antonio strives to meet the growing global demand for cyber security specialists who can draw upon a unique combination of technical and business knowledge to assess, manage and bring advances in information technology in the form of innovative products and services. This concentration allows students to receive an update to the current technology in the field of cyber security. It offers the opportunity to study information technology while developing the special expertise in cyber security. To achieve this end students focus their elective courses on developing the specialized knowledge requirements for the computer and information security area while at the same time completing the requirements for the MS degree.

In today’s rapidly changing technological environment, information technology managers require a different education than that offered by a general program. In addition to an in-depth scientific or engineering knowledge and on-the-job experience, they must have substantial business knowledge about planning and leading technical and scientific projects, directing information technology system design, developing professional and technical employees and integrating the various functions of the organization.

In addition to providing the opportunity for students who plan to study full time, the program also allows professionals in the information technology and similar industries to obtain further education and training that relate directly to their work on a part-time basis. Employers benefit from the retention of valuable, skilled employees with additional management of technology skills, and working professionals benefit from the opportunity to advance their careers with minimal impact on their personal lives.
