Successful organizations need people that know how to use technology to find solutions to business challenges. Individuals who understand how to contribute to productivity using technology are valued employees.
The Associate of Science in Information Technology (AAS) curriculum includes a common core and two levels of certificates. The AAS core provides a strong foundation in the key information technology areas of programming logic and structure, language implementation and ethics. This core provides a foundation that can be used to build a knowledge base for a variety of information technology careers. Students who have technology degrees or who have articulated courses from high school may receive advanced training in a specific programming language or languages.
The general education core courses, COSC classes, and some technical courses transfer to a variety of universities. Technical AAS degrees transfer in total to some universities. Contact a counselor or advisor at any college for specific information and to obtain the recommended sequencing of courses.
Programming students interested in transferring to a bachelor's program in computer science should consider completing the AS degree with a field of study in computer science. See the academic transfer section of this catalog for details.
