Associate Degree in Information Technology

Associate Degree in Information Technology

Description 

This programme provides a broad perspective on how to use and apply the knowledge and tools of information technology, computer science and/or information systems to both self and society. Students will be encouraged to grapple with complexities as well as advantages and disadvantages of these fields in everyday life and at the workplace. Majors are premised on the notion that information and communication technology (ICT) is best developed within the context of application. Prominent features of the courses are practical labs and projects that emphasize replication of real-life situations and require the use of a variety of resources for learning. As technological advancement becomes more pervasive, its use has expanded worldwide. Careers in ICT are therefore more in demand as persons seek better ways to enhance and alter their activities, and to live, work and think in ways previously thought impossible. Since information technology has an increasingly significant impact upon organizations and has such broad implications for everyone − individuals, groups, entire nations − students must be prepared to understand, use, and apply ICT in effective, efficient and ethical ways. 54 theory credit(s) and 1 lab credit(s).
