What is IST?
Information Sciences and Technology (IST) bridges the knowledge gap between the diverse fields of business and computer science.
- Build a solid technical background in networking, databases, programming, and system integration
- Explore the application of technology in the workforce, such as matching information systems to business needs
- Practice the teamwork, project management and analytical skills needed in today's workplace
Students must complete an internship and a fourth-year capstone project. During the capstone experience, teams of students engage in finding solutions to the real problems of major local companies.
Note: the IST degree program is one of three Penn State New Kensington baccalaureate degrees that can be completed during the daytime or evening hours. Learn more about our evening programs.
