PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The Computer Technology program is designed to prepare students for the ever-changing world of computer and information technology. Through a combination of theory and hands-on lab work, this two-year, Cisco-certified program provides students with the essentials of computer repair and support in the first year, before transitioning to the fundamentals of networking in year two.

As the first step in the computer technology career path, students are afforded the opportunity to earn the industry recognized Cisco Career Certification, which also serves as a gateway to the industry-recognized CCNA Certification. Moreover, the CompTIA A+ Certification is yet another key offering that helps fulfill a comprehensive program for students who are preparing for entry level work or have post-secondary aspirations. Prior to completion, students are also provided with internship experiences and the opportunity to earn a Career and Technical Endorsement on their diploma, which they can achieve by successfully passing the industry-standard technical assessments.
