Byron AndersonThe World Bank defines ICT as "hardware, software, networks, and media for the collection, storage, processing, transmission and presentation of information (voice, data, text, images), as well as related services." Here at UW-Stout we also include the historic context from which current ICT's have evolved, from hieroglyphics to the Gutenberg Press to the information age that we presently live in.

The Masters in Information and Communication Technology program is centered around two main principles.

  • First, provide students with a common core of knowledge related to the field of information communications technology. 

  • Second, provide students with the freedom to construct an emphasis area in a specialized field of information communications technology.

Students then tie these elements together through the development of a competency based e-portfolio. All of this is available to students in an online format.
