    DESCRIPTION
    The Computer Information Technology program is designed to prepare students for careers in the business application of computers. In this program, students choose one of the four options, which include Management Information Systems (MIS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Oracle Database Administration, and Microsoft Office Specialist. The core courses provide training in the basic concepts, which underlie computing technology, computer programming, database techniques, analysis and design, and common user applications. Technical electives provide students with the opportunity to further their knowledge in the specific area of choice. Opportunities for employment for students with experience with Oracle databases include state and federal government agencies, small business to large corporations, and Internet-based companies.
    The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Option provides the opportunity to study the emerging field of spatial databases. Opportunities for employment with experience in geographic information systems are plentiful, including federal and state agencies, local authorities, and a wide range of private businesses such as marketing, engineering, transportation, and environmental firms. This option offers a core of GIS courses supported with the related technologies of Remote Sensing and Global Positioning Systems that provide the student with the widest possible experience in the operation, maintenance, and use of spatial databases.

    The Management Information Systems (MIS) Option provides the student with the knowledge and experience to apply modern data processing techniques to the operation of businesses through the control and delivery of information. Typical entry-level positions for graduates of this program include junior programmer, programmer-analyst, software support specialist, and database specialist. Individuals who are currently employed can use courses within this option to upgrade their skills.

    The Oracle Database Administrator option provides students with the training necessary to maintain an Oracle database. This Option prepares students for the Oracle Database Administrations Certification. Oracle databases are among the most sophisticated databases currently available and are used by large corporations to store corporate-wide information. An Oracle database allows for multiple-user access, control of the level of user access, and the development of specific procedures for accessing information.

    The Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) option will prepare students to fully utilize the Microsoft suite of office products. In addition, students may prepare to take the series of certification exams to qualify at the expert or master level of certification in the MS Office suite of products. Successful completers will demonstrate overall comprehension of Microsoft desktop or project applications and the skill necessary to integrate them with other software applications.
