The selection of an appropriate degree plan is a critical step for an entering Computer Information Technology and Systems student. Each degree and certificate program leads to a specific career in the field of computer science. To make an informed career decision, students should gather information from many different sources.

If you need help during this time of near-quarantine with something in computer science - the department or our degree plans- please contact us by email at "" or your professor directly to their email (check your course in Blackboard)

For information about internships click the link below.

   Our internships are a vital part of student skill development and education. Internship courses are scheduled in the final semester of all our AAS degrees but may be completed prior to that time.  You will need an instructor recommendation and department chair approval.
The student is responsible for locating, identifying and applying for an internship and must begin preparations the semester prior to the internship. Speak with a faculty member to answer any questions. Review the information at the link above very closely.
