The Department of Information Technology in the College of Information and Mathematical Sciences (CIMS) at Clayton State University has undergone a name change.
According to CIMS Dean Dr. Lila Roberts, the Department of Information Technology is now the Department of Computer Science and Information Technology.
“The name better reflects our organization with programs in both information technology, since 1999, and computer science, since 2009,” says Dr. Byron A. Jeff, chair of the Department of Computer Science and Information Technology. “The public generally lumps all computing disciplines under computer science, so adding that to the name improves visibility of both programs.
“It also reveals both computer science courses and programs to both internal and external audiences.”
