Technology continues to grow and evolve at exponential raters: internet security, social networking, cloud computing and other areas demand millions of professionals around the world. This Program of Study contains a minimum of four credits in computer science and networking as well as a capstone experience such as an internship or a college course option. Hands-on laboratory experiences train students as entry-level technicians in the field of IT, and for advanced studies in Engineering and IT in colleges, universities, and the military.
