From working with industry-standard technology to undertaking a project which simulates real-world business scenarios, students will gain the technical and human skills they need to adapt and thrive in our era of digital transformation.

With a range of optional majors and minors, as well as a wide breadth of electives, students will be able to build their degree to support their career ambitions.
