A Novel Junior Transition Course for Students of Applied Information Technology

  • An overview of a new junior transition course offered to undergraduate students in the Bachelor of Science in Applied Information Technology is presented. The main objective of the course is to guide students to make informed decisions when choosing an area of focus that best suits their interest and abilities. Other aspects include providing general information on the program, ensuring that students get the proper advising that they need, bringing awareness to the career paths available within each concentration area, informing students of the options they have available for completing minors, second majors as well as graduate studies. Other important issues such as insights into the senior design project experience, certifications, and school resources are also discussed. Results from two semesters of teaching the course both online and in-class indicate positive outcomes and encouraging results with more favorable effects achieved in the classroom setting.
