Computer Information Technology Degree Program


DEGREE: Associate of Applied Science
DIVISION: Business & Technology
 
Computer Information Technology is primarily concerned with the study of computer and Internet technologies and with the application of the systematic methods of developing information system solutions for businesses and organizations. It includes on-going operations as well as planning, development, implementation, maintenance, and management of these technologies and systems in a variety of settings. This program includes a core of courses to be completed by all students, plus four concentrations from which each student selects one. Curriculum goals are:

(1.) to prepare students for entry-level positions in information technology and information systems, with sufficient knowledge of the overall environment to advance along several career paths, e.g., application programming, systems analysis/design, web design, and I.T. support; and

(2.) to provide the appropriate foundation for further studies in computer information systems and information technology. This program is offered with two concentrations and accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs.

(3.) For academic programs that focus on learning computer software applications, please see:    Adm. Office Tech. (ADOT).
