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.
