Computer Information Technology

The Computer Information Technology curriculum is designed to prepare graduates for employment with organizations that use computers to process, manage, and communicate information. This is a flexible curriculum that can be customized to meet community information systems needs.

Course work will develop a student’s ability to communicate complex technical issues related to computer hardware, software, and networks in a manner that computer users can understand. Classes cover computer operations and terminology, operating systems, database, networking, security, and technical support.

Information technology involves the use of computer hardware (computer equipment and related devices) and software (the various programs used to operate computers and related devices).
Information technology professionals use, share and store information that supports everyday business functions.

Entry-level information technology workers typically help people use computer equipment and software. They also install and repair computer equipment. Information technology workers are employed in important areas of business like banking, finance, health care, retail and manufacturing.
