Computer and Information Technology

The Department of Computer and Information Technology (CIT) at Purdue provides educational opportunities that apply information technology (IT) to solve societal problems. Degree programs in information systems technology and network engineering technology focus on four core areas: software development, systems integration, data management, computer networks. The drive to solve problems extends to industrial and corporate partners and funded faculty research projects as well.

One of my favorite class projects in CIT involved object oriented programming – basically creating apps for your desktop computer. Our group found a teacher and developed a program she could use to teach her students facts about all 50 U.S. states. We would show a random picture of the state’s bird, flower, or flag, and give the students four randomized choices. Nearly half of our program forced us to learn things we hadn’t already learned in the classroom.
