Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

The Information Systems and Technology Associate of Applied Science degree  prepares students to enter various paraprofessional and professional careers upon graduation. The area of information systems, under the headings of Information Systems (IS) and Information Technology (IT), has become critical to the operation of many organizations. The field has evolved from a cost center to one where the IS and IT operations are providing strategic value to corporations. The knowledge required to be effective in this field has also grown. IS and IT staff must understand not only how computers operate, but also how they can be effectively networked together. The use of internet technologies has become pervasive and database management has become an integral function.

Graduates are able to:

  • solve IS and IT problems within the context of business systems
  • communicate effectively within an organization
  • work productively in team and individual settings
  • demonstrate professionalism and ethical behavior
  • adapt to emerging technologies and new environments
