Student Work & Research

All graduate IT students complete their program by conducting a research project (IT 680) in order to integrate and apply knowledge acquired in the degree program to a specific problem. Students can work directly with any member of the full-time faculty, who supervises the project. Students may select from a list of projects or propose their own for approval by the supervising faculty member.

Full-time faculty members currently conduct research in:

  • cybersecurity
  • mobile apps
  • data management
  • open source software
  • global ethics
  • project management
  • technology for health care

Examples of recent student work and research includes:

  • Approaches to Hardening the Linux Operation System
