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 inter-departmental 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 option prepares students to maintain network hardware and software so that people within the organization receive timely and accurate information. Using cable, fiber optics, or wireless communications, the option prepares students to configure, manage and maintain a company’s computer networking infrastructure. The option emphasizes networking technology for local area networks (LANs), and for connecting to larger networks (WANs) and to the Internet.
Graduates of this option may qualify as network administrators, responsible for day to day network operations as well as for entry level networking positions, that may include hardware support and troubleshooting, software installation, and maintenance of a network.
