Judy Archer, Chair Department Information Technology Department


The Computer Information Systems & Technology (CITE) curriculum is designed to prepare students for careers in the high demand Information Technology segment of the workforce.

Each area of the curriculum provides entry level skills, or prepares the student for industry certification in the chosen field of study. The CITE program curriculum has been developed with the assistance and advice of an advisory council which is composed of service area industry professionals.

Students may pursue an Occupational Skills Award (OSA), Level 1 Workforce Certificate, or an Associate of Applied Science degree.

The degree and certificate programs will provide the student with skills in industry standard software and hardware. The program provides skills in computer applications, performing critical thinking, and the application of ethics in their daily operations.

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.
