About this course
Craven Community College faculty are actively engaged in the latest technology, and the college’s Computer Technology Integration program has options to help fill the bill for many employment opportunities locally, across the state and nationwide.
The Computer Technology Integration (CTI) curriculum prepares graduates for employment as Information Technology analysts, designers, technicians, administrators, developers, or programmers with organizations that use computers to design, process, manage, and communicate information.
Students will select a cluster of classes that highlight specific technical paths such as Business Applications, Cyber Security, Data Support Services, IT Support, IT Support-Medical, Network Management, and Software and Web Development. Each emphasis leads to certificates and diplomas within the program, and ultimately students graduate with an AAS degree in CTI with an emphasis in the identified track.
Coursework develops a student’s ability to communicate professionally and think critically. Students also learn to apply programming logic principles, identify security risks, select appropriate hardware and software computer components, evaluate operating system performance and use various business software applications.
Graduates should qualify for employment in entry-level positions with businesses, educational systems, and governmental agencies that rely on computer systems to design and manage information. The program will incorporate the competencies of industry-recognized certification exams from Microsoft, Comp-TIA, CISCO and others.
- Admission to this program requires that students be high school graduates or have a recognized equivalency.
