Why ITI?

The Information Technology Institute (ITI) is a new three-semester program that launched Fall 2018. Classes are scheduled in afternoon blocks, at one campus. Fall and Spring semesters consist of two 8-week sessions. Each session has two back-to-back classes. The 9-week Summer session consists of a Capstone class and an optional internship. All of your classes are set for the whole program.
