We equip you with relevant skills in Information Technology

 

Bachelor of Science in Information Technology

At SPUQC’s Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, we acknowledge that the school is the first and best place to learn information communications technology.

The purpose of IT in education is generally to familiarize students with the use and workings of computers, how they function and contribute to a fast and efficient way of doing things.

Networks Have No Borders

Although we acknowledge the great benefits brought by IT, recent breaches in cybersecurity dominated the headlines worldwide.

Cyberattacks have crossed borders and have affected the following industries:  bank and financing, entertainment, manufacturing, geopolitics, and digital marketing, to name a few.
We saw how their covert operations infiltrated systems that have great economic costs on large organizations caught private and public agencies unawares.   These cyberattacks reached new levels never before seen.  
We now live in a world where fake news dominate. We saw how these have influenced national elections. These new developments have required us to introduce new skills at SPUQC.
