The Computer Information Technology Department (CIT) has a clear, well-articulated, three-pronged mission, which includes supporting the IT components of the college’s General Education offerings (across divisions, departments, and campuses, as well as through interdepartmental collaboration), preparing an IT workforce through certificate and associate degree offerings, and providing IT students with seamless transfer opportunities to related Baccalaureate Degree programs.
The Computer Technology Program offers many courses that apply to other options to afford students the opportunity to explore the many career tracks in Information Technology before selecting a career in Computer Support, Data Base or Networking. The Department’s goals are in concert with the College’s goals. Using input from its Industry Advisory Committees and internship course, the department is continually updating and fine tuning its programs of study.
This program is designed to meet the needs of our Information Technology students who wish to pursue a Baccalaureate Degree. This program will allow our students to move seamlessly to colleges offering Baccalaureate Degrees in Information Technology. This program provides a core foundation in the major pillars of information technology and will allow a student to concentrate in one of the areas before transferring.
Graduates of this program can transfer to bachelor’s programs at four-year colleges.
Upon Completion of this Concentration Graduates will be able to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of the major pillars of Information Technology.
- Demonstrate the ability to solve technical programs and to apply critical thinking principles to Information Technology issues.
- Demonstrate an upper level understanding of networking, programming, database, or other technology fields.
