About the Program

Computer software is needed to operate and protect computer systems and networks.  Programmers write, test, and maintain the detailed instructions that computers must follow to perform their functions. Database administrators determine ways to organize, store, and protect data. The curriculum stresses critical thinking skills and the concepts, principles and techniques of information processing, while providing a background in general education and business.

Students must earn a grade of “C” or better in all of the courses offered within the Business/Public Services and Information Systems Technology Departments for the grade to be counted toward graduation.  Specifically, these include courses with the following prefixes: ACC, AOT, BAF, BUS, CPT, EGR, HUS, IST, LEG, MGT and MKT.

Learning experiences for students in the Computer Technology program are provided on the Beltline Campus.
