Overview

In this Information Sciences and Technologies master's degree from Rochester Institute of Technology you'll combine IT with business to understand how Big Data is collected and managed, and how its analysis informs both business decisions and IT solutions in the computing industry.

Technology has woven itself into the fabric of society, binding people and information closer together than ever before. This new digital era brings with it exciting innovations. It also brings a host of new, unexplored problems that can be unlocked through data analytics. RIT's master's of information technology and analytics provides an opportunity for in-depth, career-oriented study that explores how information is understood and leverages the most current data analytics techniques to address industry problems.

An Information Technology Master's Degree That Combines IT and Analytics

Graduate study in a computing discipline that only focuses on traditional computing approaches is not flexible enough to meet the needs of the real world. New hardware and software tools are continually introduced into the market. IT professionals must have a specific area of expertise, as well as adaptability, to tackle the next new thing. Or, just as often, retrofit available technologies to help users adapt to the latest trends.

RIT's master's of information technology and analytics provides an opportunity for in-depth study that prepares you for today’s high-demand computing careers. Companies are drowning in data—structured, semi-structured, and unstructured. Big data is not just high transaction volumes; it is also data in various formats, with high velocity change, and increasing complexity. Information is gleaned from unstructured sources—such as web traffic or social networks—as well as traditional ones; and information delivery must be immediate and on demand.
