Integrated Information Technology (iIT)College of Hospitality, Retail, and Sport Management
This major prepares graduates for careers in information technology. The program focuses on the design, implementation and management of information systems and networks, including databases, large-scale computers, and Internet-based systems, as well as project management and end-user support. The program includes general education courses, information technology core and advanced courses, management courses related to the field, and an industry internship.
The Integrated Information Technology program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
A bachelor of science degree in Integrated Information Technology consists of the Carolina Core, related coursework, College of HRSM required courses, iIT required and elective courses, and free electives.
Integrated Information Technology majors may pursue a minor in any course of study offered by the College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management (HRSM) as well as any other University program with an approved minor. College of HRSM required courses may not be counted toward a minor.
Pre-professional courses needed to progress to Professional Division (45 Hours)
The IIT program is divided into Pre-Professional and Professional division classes. Students are required to complete 15 designated Pre-Professional courses (see below) and obtain a minimum grade point average of 2.00 before being eligible to enroll in Professional Division classes. Students who do not meet the specific course, semester hour, and grade point average requirements for progression must continue in the Pre-Professional division or change to another major. The required Pre-Professional classes are:
All courses listed under CMW Carolina Core Requirements, College of HRSM Required Courses, iIT Core Courses, and iIT Professional Division Courses must be completed with a grade of C or better.

Required Major Courses
Choose one of the following courses:
The IIT curriculum includes 1-13 hours of electives depending on how students fulfill the Carolina Core requirements. Any course in the university can be used to satisfy the elective requirement (including additional electives in the major).
The IIT curriculum includes 5-17 hours of electives depending on how students fulfill the Carolina Core requirements. Any course in the university can be used to satisfy the elective requirement (including additional electives in the major).
The Integrated Information Technology B.S. program requires that a grade of “C” or better be earned in MATH 174 and all ITEC courses applied to the degree. All required IIT courses and courses taken as major electives are major courses and may not be counted toward a minor. All other required courses and electives may be used for a minor or application area as appropriate. CSCE 101 and 102 are not major courses and may not be counted for major credit.
Major GPA requirement policies are described in the College of Engineering and Computing section of this bulletin. For the purpose of these policies, the following courses are used to determine the Major GPA for the Integrated Information Technology B.S. program: all Lower Division Integrated Information Technology courses and all Integrated Information Technology Major courses.
The program is moving from HRSM to College of Engineering and Computing, and we are removing references to HRSM. We removed the reference to Professional Division because this is not used in CEC. The minor updates to the Carolina Core are proposed to be consistent with other programs in CEC.
The change from 125 credit hours to 120 credit hours was done previously when all the programs in HRSM were changed, but this reduction is credit hours was not updated in the bulletin. The updates in this revision reflect the 120 credit hour requirement for the degree.
We are adding MGMT 371 as an alternative course for HRTM 344 to give students scheduling flexibility. The letter of concurrence from Management is attached.
The content of ITEC 301 - Professional Internship Seminar was changed to cover the relevant topics presented in HRSM 301 - HRSM Professional Development Seminar, and HRSM was subsequently removed from the curriculum. The reason for this change is that HRSM 301 is designed to address "Strategies, tactics, and requisite skills for career success in the hospitality, retail, sport, entertainment, and technology industries". The revised ITEC 301 course focuses strictly on the Strategies, tactics, and requisite skills needed for the technology industries.

SUBJECT: Letter of concurrence for MGMT 371
I am pleased to offer a letter of concurrence on behalf of the proposed Integrated Information Technology program change to include MGMT 372, Principles of Management, as an elective for the students in your program. The students in your program would be eligible to enroll in the non-major sections of MGMT 371.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
