October 16, 2015 – Cypress, CA – As part of Trident University International’s (Trident) continuous improvement to the academic experience for students, starting in Fall 2015 students working towards a bachelors degree in the College of Information Systems can expect modern, revamped curricula. Updated programs include the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Management (BSITM) and Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS).
Both programs were updated based on an extensive curriculum mapping against three guidelines:
1. Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)
2. Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) guidelines on computing programs
3. National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) guidelines for cybersecurity
Dr. Wendy Wang, Faculty Lead in the College of Information System, who led the rigorous assessment of these programs, was instrumental in recommending and implementing these changes. Due to the frequently changing nature of these fields, the curricula need to be modified and updated regularly in order to maximize the student experience.
These changes address a number of issues, including course redundancies and the absence of key subject areas, such as assembly language and security topics. The huge growth of the cyber security sector is addressed across all courses.
Concentrations available as part of these programs include Cyber Security (BSCS), Business Systems Analysis (BSITM), Information Security (BSITM), and Information Technology Project Management (BSITM).
