The Database Administration Associate of Applied Science and Database Management Certificate programs at NCTC are designed to prepare the students for a career in the use of specialized software to store and organize data. The curriculum provides learning opportunities and hands-on training in the fundamentals of web programming, Oracle, and the most up-to-date database programs.

 

The Database curriculum has been developed with the assistance and advice of an advisory council which is composed of service area industry professionals.

Prerequisite: Students in this program must be able to keyboard at a minimum rate of 40 words per minute (WPM). Those who cannot meet this requirement must take a keyboarding class to improve their skills prior to enrollment.

The Certificate Program-

The Certificate Program provides similar classes to the degree programs, however there are no academic classes in these individual curricula. A student that commences study as a certificate student and later desires to complete the degree program will find that the classes taken for a certificate will readily transfer to the degree program.

 

Students pursing the certificate typically incur tuition and fee costs of $3,600.  Books and supplies constitute approximately an additional $3,000 across the entire certificate.  Financing for this program may be available through grants, scholarships, loans, and institutional financing plans. 

 

The program is designed to take 32 weeks to complete. This certificate can be completed through a mix of face-to-face classes and online classes.

The Degree Program –

Students pursing the degree typically incur tuition and fee costs around $7,500.  Books and supplies constitute approximately an additional $4,500.  Financing for this program may be available through grants, scholarships, loans, and institutional financing plans. 

 

The program is designed to take 64 weeks to complete.  The degree can be completed through a mix of face-to-face classes and online classes.
