Student Experience

The MCIT Online program is fully developed by the University of Pennsylvania and courses are taught by the same faculty that teach on-campus. 

Courses are offered in:

  • Spring (January to May) 

  • Summer (May to August) - This semester is optional

  • Fall (August to December) 

New cohorts start in fall and spring semesters. All courses are approximately 15 weeks in length.

In addition, MCIT Online students have access to hands-on, career development initiatives. The Executives in Residence (EIR) program connects students with senior-level leaders from some of today’s top tech companies. Executives in residence will lead workshops, mentor students, provide networking opportunities, give students real-world perspectives on industry trends, and more. Students can also partake in Side Projects for Advancement, Refinement and Collaboration (SPARC), a summer competition where students can showcase their skills ​to potential employers.
