The purpose of establishing a minor in Information Technology is that specific program courses align with multiple majors across campus. Allied majors include Construction Management, Civil Engineering, Landscape Architecture, Architectural Engineering, and Biological Engineering. All of these majors would benefit from the added breadth offered by this field.

*The CST elective course must be at or above the 200 level
