    How do you get your IT career started? IT professionals will tell you it's about having skills and being able to apply them to a business problem or situation. Our two-year program does just that! You'll get the hands-on skills necessary to be immediately productive in a business environment.

    You'll take computers and servers apart and rebuild them. You'll learn all about networking on our CISCO equipment.  You'll construct dynamic web sites and work with Microsoft's current product set including SQL Server and Visual Studio. Our faculty all have prior industry experience as well as their credentials and they'll help you find learning opportunities outside the classroom too.  Just ask them.

    When you've completed the program, you'll be ready for the real IT world. Of course, you can go even further if you want and open the door to more possibilities.  On completion of our two year program, you can seamlessly move on and complete the  B.S in Computer Information Systems and Technology. Check that out too.
