FUSE’s Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) responds to this growing demand, offering a fully online program designed for completion in just 18 months. Our program is intended for both new graduates and seasoned professionals alike, although on-job Information Technology specialists who already are engaged in software development, infrastructure support, or business analysis will find the skills they acquire through the courses to supplement their day-to-day experiences. 

Objective 1: Students will have the technical expertise to design, develop, test, deploy, and support information technology applications. 

Intended Outcome: Upon graduation, students will have the foundation and core skills to serve as consultants and be immediately employable as software development specialists, infrastructure engineers, data analysts, or information assurance specialists.  

Objective 2: Students will be sufficiently trained to sit for industry professional examinations. 

Intended Outcome: FUSE’s MSIT program students acquire the tools, techniques, and knowledge to sit for general IT certification exams and exams in their areas of specialization.* 

Students must be formally accepted into the MSIT program and meet all graduation criteria outlined in this Catalog. Matriculated students must successfully complete the total of 33 credit hours listed above and maintain a 3.0 grade point average to graduate. If the student falls below a 3.0 grade point average, the student will be required to re-take the most recent courses and to pay additional tuition. Under such circumstances, the most recent grades achieved are counted toward the cumulative GPA. Students may repeat each course only once. Students who have not been able to raise their grade point average to at least a 3.0 after re-taking a course will be dismissed from the program. Graduation is not automatic upon completion of requirements. All students are required to complete and submit an Application to Graduate to the President, along with the requisite fees.

What Will You Learn?

Tailored for those engaged in software development, infrastructure support, or business analysis, our program comprises three foundational, two core, and five concentration courses, culminating in a capstone project. Specializations include Data Analytics and Business Intelligence (DA/BI), Information Assurance (IA), Telecommunication and Infrastructure (ICT), and Software Engineering (SE). Upon completing the first semester, candidates are paired with faculty mentors to embark on their capstone projects, providing a holistic understanding of the IT landscape.
