Computer Information Technology
As computers find their way into every part of our lives, IT professionals are needed to keep the system functioning and the data safe. Our Computer Information Technology (CIT) AAS two-year degree program provides students with strong technical and problem-solving skills that prepare you for careers in almost any industry. As a CIT graduate, you could be a security specialist, computer technician, network analyst, programmer, web developer, or database analyst.
At UTTC, we care about your success. All of our CIT classes feature smaller class sizes – meaning you get more one-one-one time with instructors and use of the lab equipment. The CIT program contains core classes in computer hardware and networking, Windows and Linux operating systems, security, and programming. Every class includes hands-on labs that use a variety of different computing & network devices. Students have internship opportunities with local businesses.
CIT students are typically interested in new technology, a variety of computing devices, problem solving, and computer gaming. They are motivated to learn about technology, willing to experiment, and able to grow from mistakes. CIT students enjoy assisting others with technology, and have the ability to work both independently and in a group setting.
