I was scared at first that the MSIT program would be too technical for me, because I came from a business background. However the professors are willing to work with you and help you understand the concepts of their teaching so you’re well-equipped with the skills of your learning to go out into the industry and land a job. The professors are good at what they do and the reason you’re in the program is to learn—don’t be scared that you need a technical background to apply, they will work with you. I had a class where the professor modified the syllabus to spend more time on a particular subject that we weren’t understanding. They’re flexible as far as understanding what the class needs and catering the needs to help benefit us and our careers.
