There has been an explosion of computer users in business. These users neither know, nor need to know, very much about how a computer works in order to use it. Therefore there is a great demand for "user advocates" to help them decide which technology is appropriate for their needs and to help them deploy and use that technology. The Associate Information Technology Degree program will provide students withthe knowledge and skills necessary to become one of these much sought-after advocates.
Information Technology students learn to "make things work" for people in today's business. The curriculumdevelops competencies in four major areas: technical/practical skills, business/soft skills, industry/field experience and certifications. Students learnto apply what they have learned and to solve practical business problems by creating applications that support the problem-solving and decision-making needs of the corporate community.
After completing the core requirements, a concentration may be selected.
