The Florida Institute of Technology has introduced 11 undergraduate degree programs that will be delivered through University Alliance, a division of Bisk Education, a provider of online degree and certificate programs. The online program will go by the name of Florida Tech University Online.

The institute said all class lectures will be delivered by streaming MP3 audio as well as video, allowing students to see and hear their instructors or view animated slides integrated with audio. The school will also offer message boards, online chat rooms and e-mail.

"With Florida Tech University Online, we're able to deliver a world class university experience with courses taught by internationally recognized faculty to students almost anywhere in the world," said Dr. Anthony Catanese, president of Florida Tech.

Students will be able to receive bachelor degrees in criminal justice, accounting, business administration, computer information systems, and human resources administration. The school is also offering two associates degrees, one in liberal arts and the other in business administration. A master's degree in information technology is also being launched.

University Alliance is being used to deliver online courses for the University of Notre Dame, Tulane University, Thunderbird, the University of San Francisco, the University of Scranton and Jacksonville University, as well as Villanova University.
