DescriptionAdvances in information technology have fundamentally changed the ways in which we work and communicate. 21st-century organizations create and use an unprecedented amount of digital data and face a pressing need to organize and manage digital information and services. The Bachelor of Information Technology program in Information Resource Management (IRM), a joint collaboration between Carleton University and Algonquin College, is designed to produce graduates who can help fill that need.

IRM is a unique four-year multidisciplinary program focused on information systems and how they are used in a real-world context. Students develop marketable skills in the management of digital resources and services including databases, websites and social media. Subjects covered in IRM courses include information management, database theory and development, metadata, web interface development, communication skills, library software, marketing, special collections, network technology and legal issues in information technology. Students will graduate with both a Bachelor of Information Technology degree from Carleton University and a Library and Information Technician Ontario College Diploma from Algonquin College.
