University of Pennsylvania Academic Programs in Information Technology
The University of Pennsylvania offers a number of academic programs in Information Technology. For additional information, please refer to the details provided on each program's web site.
MASTERS PROGRAMS OF STUDY
Master's of Computer and Information Technology (MCIT)
The MCIT program is for people whose undergraduate degree is not computer science. The MCIT program stems from a belief that advanced computer science coursework for people with degrees in other fields leads to highly successful career paths. This innovative master's degree program allows those with no computing experience to begin an IT career, those who are experienced in IT to advance, and it prepares students for future advanced study in computer science. Students can enroll either full- or part-time.
Master of Science in Engineering in Computer and Information Science (MSE)
The CIS MSE Program offers scholars the opportunity for advanced study in the scientific foundations of the rapidly growing field of computer science. Applicants to the MSE program should have strong undergraduate training in mathematics and computer science.
Master of Science in Engineering in Telecommunications and Networking (TCOM)
The TCOM Program addresses the increasingly complex demands placed on current and future telecommunications managers in the private, public, and military sectors. Courses cover a broad range of telecommunications and networking issues while reinforcing a systems approach. Multidisciplinary in nature, this program draws its faculty from the
Electrical & Systems Engineering and Computer & Information Science departments in the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS), and from the Wharton School of Business.
Executive Master's in Technology Management (EMTM)
The EMTM Program is a multidisciplinary master's degree program offered by Penn Engineering and co-sponsored by Wharton — is a unique alternative to traditional MBA, EMBA and MSE programs. The first of its kind, established in 1988, EMTM prepares leaders for a fast-moving global economy where the ability to manage advances in science and technology in the context of strategic business goals is critical to innovation, competition and success.
Master of Science and Graduate Certificate in Organizational Dynamics: Projects, Programs, and Portfolios Concentration (P3)
Organizational Dynamics holds the premise that the increasing complexity of organizational activities requires leaders who can integrate "hard science/analytic" content (e.g., structural information, rational data-based decision making) and "soft art/emotional" processes (e.g., how to respond, what events mean, judgment-based decision making). Some areas covered in the P3 Concentration include Project Management and Team Strategy, Organizational Leadership, and Business Process Excellence.
Staff who are not pursuing a degree program can still attend courses at Penn under Penn’s tuition benefits program provided they have the necessary prerequisites and that the course enrollment is not restricted. For more information on Penn’s tuition benefits see http://www.hr.upenn.edu/Benefits/Tuition/ The following is a listing of courses from the University of Pennsylvania Office of the University Registrar.
