Computer Technology

DESCRIPTION

The Computer Technologies curriculum leads to an associate degree in the field of computer technologies. Additionally, the program is designed to offer Microsoft or other industry-recognized certification in specific areas of study within the degree program.  LRCC participates in Microsoft Imagine, Oracle, and Apple Academies.  While earning an associate degree or a certificate, students can become certified in an industry standard by passing a series of tests.  Certification gives industry recognition of proficiency in technical areas in demand by businesses.  Certain certifications may also give access to technical and product information not available to the general public, including access to secure websites, as well as invitations to conferences, technical training and special events.   

Students taking the Associate in Science Degree in Computer Technologies select one track from the three tracks offered: Network Administrator, Application Developer/Gaming and Animation, Database Administrator/Web Developer.

The rapidly changing world of computer technology has created a growing demand for persons trained in hardware and software.  This degree program prepares students for a broad range of employment opportunities in the field; including positions in networking, software and mobile app development, database administration, gaming and animation development and help desk administration.  All courses are designed with the potential for transfer to a four-year institution.
