Alumni Proud: Blazing trails and forging new paths

Since the first days of our Computer Analyst/Programmer (CAP) program in 1968, flourishing into a robust program by the ’90s, transitioning into Information Systems Technology (IST) in 1997, and in its current form as Business Information Technology (BIT) in 2010 – we are proud to have graduated many honoured alumni. The possibilities of professional life after graduation are profound. Here is a snapshot of how some of our alumni have shaped their careers.
