Integrated Information Technology (iIT)College of Engineering and Computing
The Integrated Information Technology program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
See College of Engineering and Computing for entrance requirements, progression requirements, and special academic opportunities.
Two courses, one from category A, one from category B
or ENGL 462 - Technical Writing
or ENGL 463 - Business Writing
Minimum Course Grades
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.
Program 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 Program GPA for the Integrated Information Technology B.S. program: all Lower Division Integrated Information Technology courses and all Integrated Information Technology Major courses.
Transfer and Major Change Course Substitutions
The following courses may be used to satisfy IIT degree requirements if they were taken prior to the student becoming an IIT major or through transient enrollment.
ECON 224 may be satisfied by completing both ECON 221 and ECON 222 .
The change to the ECON 224 requirement codify that we will accept alternative courses to meet this requirements. This is being done to codify the acceptance of course already taken by transfer students. ITEC students will continue to take ECON 224.
The addition of a second coding sequence is to provide students with flexibility to take either a Visual Basic track or a Java track. Transfer students will be able to apply course work already taken to satify the program requirments. It is anticipated that current ITEC students will continue to take the current course sequence. This change impacted the credits in the Lower Division and Major Courses (Lower division increased by 3 credits, Major decreased by 3 credits).
Modified the term Major GPA to Program GPA in the Academic Standards of the Program to be consistent with the other departments in CEC.
Dear Curricula and Courses Committee,
The Computer Science Department concurs with the creation of an ITEC 204 course Cross Listed to CSCE 204.
The Computer Science Department also concurs with adding CSCE 145 and CSCE 146 to the ITEC curriculum to satisfy that program’s software programming curricular requirements. We understand that this is being done to facilitate acceptance of coursework already completed by students transferring into the ITEC program. However, we acknowledge that this may represent an increased demand for those classes if ITEC majors chose to take these courses rather than the alternate Programming sequence that currently exists in the ITEC program. Our current staffing and course offerings can handle the increased demand.

Re: Changes to Academic Bulletin for the B.S. in Integrated Information Technology
Dear Prof. John Gerdes,
The Department of Integrated Information Technology has proposed adding to their “academic standings” listing in the academic bulletin that the ECON 224 requirement for the B.S in Integrated Information Technology degree can be satisfied by the combination of ECON 221 and ECON 222, but only for students who have taken these courses before becoming an IIT major. The Department of Economics is in concurrence with this change. As it effectively restricts declared ITT majors from taking ECON 221 and 222, it should not impact the demand for economics principles courses.

From: LYONS, JED Sent: Wednesday, October 11, 2017 1:41 PMTo: GERDES JR., JOHN Subject: RE: Academic Programs Proposal System: Action Required
I have not yet approved the APPS for the IIT program change, as:
I would recommend that the coding sequence courses be included in the “Lower Division” category instead of the “Major” category to facilitate implementation of our articulation agreements with other institutions, and to allow double-counting of the added courses with a minor or second major. If the changes are made as indicated, then the hours aren’t adding up in the major section and in the introduction section.
There appear to be typos in the justification “This is being done to provide codify the acceptance of course already taken by transfer students. ITEC studends will continue to take ECON 224.”
I think you had mentioned a desire to modify the “Minimum Course Grades” section, something like the following?
From “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.
To “The Integrated Information Technology B.S. program requires that a grade of “C” or better be earned in all courses used to satisfy a Lower Division Integrated Information Technology requirement or an Integrated Information Technology Major requirement.”
FYI, I am personally against a requirement of a C or in any course for graduation for several reasons. First, USC has declared that a D is passing. Second, that rule bumps up against the college rule of a maximum of 4 repeated courses.
(4) Please discuss with Betty if there are going to be any curriculum changes as a result of the ABET visit.

I'm sorry I didn't catch this previously, but CSCE 145 and 146 are each 4-credit courses. This makes the following credit hours variable:
Lower Division: (21-23 hours) <two places>
Software Programming Language (6-8 hours).
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. There is no need to attend the Curricula and Courses meeting, but it is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
