Associate of Applied Business in Computer Technology

Computer Technology provides students with a core consisting of programming, operating systems and networks, Web site development and work group productivity technologies. Students may choose from concentrations in specific areas including networking, applications development and Internet/multimedia technologies. These concentrations allow students to focus their studies and begin to prepare for various professional certifications.  There is also a general concentration that prepares students for positions in small- and medium-size organizations that require computer staff to perform a wide variety of technical duties. In addition, the concentrations may articulate fully or in part with available certificates in microcomputer applications, database administration and advanced Internet. This degree articulates fully with the Bachelor's degree in Technical and Applied Studies (BTAS), which offers even more concentrations of study in computer technology.
