ABET and ACM have collaborated in recent years to form accredition and Curriculum standards for degrees in Information Technology as a distinct field of study separate from both Computer Science and Information Systems. SIGITE is the ACM working group for defining these standards. The current criteria are included in the documents here. Accredited Programs currently exist at the US Naval Academy, Rochester Insitute of Technology, Purdue, and BYU among others. This information should probably be included somehow, I'm popping this info in the article, but feel free to modify it or move it if there is a more appropriate place.
I realize the original definition of IT encompasses all of computer technology, including programming. But as somebody who works in the industry, I typically see the term IT is used, particularly in job ads, to mean sys admin. System administration, as a phrase, is not even mentioned in the article. Since apparently there are some strong feelings about what should be or not be in this article, I wanted to get some feedback here, rather than just jump in and add something.

It isn't my experience that IT means systems administration. You would need to cite sources for anything you want to add to the article by the way. --Michig (talk) 18:51, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
