The Computer Information Systems & Technology (CITE) curriculum is designed to prepare students for careers in the high-demand Information Technology segment of the workforce.

Each area of the curriculum provides entry-level skills or prepares the student for industry certification in the chosen field of study.

The degree and certificate programs will provide the student with skills in industry-standard software and hardware. The program provides skills in computer applications, performing critical thinking, and the application of ethics in their daily operations.
