Networking and Computer Information Science Career Options
to evolve with technology. The Computer Applications program concentrates on microcomputer applications in the area of electronic spreadsheets, electronic presentations, database management, word processing, networks, Internet, and computer operating systems. The Computer Networking Certificate provides students with entry-level skills and the essential knowledge needed to succeed in the computer networking ﬁeld. The certiﬁcate program also provides an opportunity for students to expand their knowledge through advanced networking and network operating system classes. In the Computer Software Developer Program, students explore the theory of software design and improve individual skills through a “hands-on” approach to writing, testing, and debugging computer programs. Students will develop analytical skills, along with a solid foundation in several computer programming languages, through the analysis of generalized computer algorithms. The Business Computer Information Science Program offers students an opportunity to develop computer skills in a business environment. Through theoretical discussions and a “handson” approach, students will explore the integration of business and computer concepts, while developing skills necessary to enter and succeed in the work environment. Students must receive a minimum grade of “C” or better in all required core courses and the speciﬁc courses listed as program electives in order to qualify for the degree or certiﬁcate.
