LINCOLN, Neb. – As the Peter Kiewit Institute seeks to take itself to the “next level of accomplishment and success,” a new degree program in the College of Information Science and Technology will help the institute reach its goals.
The program, a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Innovation, is an interdisciplinary program allowing students to unite the study of information technology with fields ranging from mathematics to fine arts.
The proposal, which was approved by the University of Nebraska Board of Regents on Friday, will also help strengthen collaboration across disciplines and help establish stronger links between the Peter Kiewit Institute and other academic units in the university. This was one of the recommendations for the institute made by The Washington Advisory Group last year.
