At Vermont Tech, you'll get both the classroom and real-world experience you need to design, build, and deploy dynamic software systems; scalable and secure data networks; and telecommunication infrastructures. Our students develop the technical savvy necessary to effectively interact with software developers at a detailed level while recognizing the big-picture business viewpoint and how to communicate effectively with the rest of an organization.
Graduates of this program are prepared to understand the organization and technology of computers, databases, networking, and other information technologies. Students are introduced to the breadth of technologies and to the basics of the business world.
Because of the broad technological background this program provides, students are well-prepared to enter new technical areas as the field expands and evolves.
In addition to all of the objectives included in the associate program, a student with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Technology will be able to:
Design and architect systems that utilize computer networking
Understand the requirements for developing and deploying high-quality, large-scale software systems
Design, implement, and evaluate a user interface for a computer system
Understand the concepts and practice of relational databases
Understand the security issues surrounding information technology and the appropriate tools and techniques to safeguard that security
Understand the professional, historical, and social context of information technology and make reasoned judgments about the social and ethical implications of their actions
All students must actively participate in the design, development, and evaluation of a sizable information technology system and present the results of that effort.
The student, in conjunction with the department chair, may develop a sequence of courses to best meet their background and needs that still satisfies the degree requirements. A typical curriculum is shown here.
