Concentration Overview

The Computer Information Technology (CIT) Department mission is two-fold. CIT prepares its students for good paying, entry level careers as database professionals through the Associate in Science (A.S.) and Certificate Database Programming and Administration Programs. CIT also prepares students to transfer to four-year college Information Technology (IT) Programs through two Associate in Arts (A.A.) Programs: A.A. Computer Information Systems Transfer and A.A. Computer Science Transfer. The Department’s goals are in concert with the College’s goals. Using input from its Industry Advisory Committee and internship course, the department is continually updating and fine tuning its programs of study. Graduates of this concentration may qualify to transfer using benefits of MassTransfer to a four-year state college or University of Massachusetts campus.
