This program is designed for those students interested in employment in the computer service industry.

This program also helps a student prepare for Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS), Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP), Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) and the following CompTIA certifications: Security+, A+ and Network+.

The Associate of Applied Science degree in Computer Information Technology prepares students for positions in the workplace through the use of various systems, applications and products. These subject-specific courses focus on those skillsets identified by employers as essential in today’s workplace and, where appropriate, will prepare students for industry-recognized certification examinations. The program is designed to ensure that students have the proper experience, training, and skills to begin work upon successful completion of the program.

The program provides background knowledge of hardware and software and technical skills required to install and maintain computer systems including networking.  Students will be prepared for industry certifications via Microsoft and CompTIA exams. The student should be advised that the completion of these courses only prepares them to take each of the associated industry certification exams and does NOT certify them. It is the student’s responsibility to register and successfully pass each exam.

This is a technical program designed to prepare students for employment. This program is not a transfer program, although many institutions accept all or part of the course work toward the bachelor’s degree.
