What is Integrated Technology? (Part 2)

The recently renamed online Bachelor of Science in Integrated Technology program at Husson University seeks to help students make connections between the technical skills required of computing professionals and their practical application to the business world.

For Husson, the difference between information technology and “integrated technology” lies in the scope of instruction. As Assistant Professor of Information Technology Michael Knupp explains, Husson’s integrated technology program emphasizes more than technical skills. It helps students frame the global context of technology. The integrated technology program encourages students to participate in conversations about how digital and work spaces interact, translating their education into practical skills that lead to career advancement.
