The new degree program will be the eighth undergraduate degree program offered by the university’s School of Technology. The new program will launch in 2015.

Benjamin Uwakweh, dean of the School of Technology at North Carolina A&T, stated: “Few programs throughout the country have placed emphasis on training the next generation of students to support mainframes/enterprise systems.
