The Georgia Southern University College of Engineering and Information Technology has been renamed to the College of Engineering and Computing after GS’ consolidation with Armstrong State University.

Along with the name change, the college has added new information technology program options.

The new BSIT is a consolidated version of GS’s data science and IT management degrees with ASU’s cyber security and and general IT degrees.

Currently a general IT track and a cyber security track are offered on the Armstrong campus, while data science and IT management are offered on the GS campus.

Though there is interest in bringing all the programs to all campuses, Russell Thackston, assistant professor at GS, said.
