The Computer Information Technology Department (CIT) has a clear, well-articulated, three-pronged mission, which includes supporting the IT components of the college’s General Education offerings (across divisions, departments, and campuses, as well as through interdepartmental collaboration), preparing an IT workforce through certificate and associate degree offerings, and providing IT students with seamless transfer opportunities to related Baccalaureate Degree programs.
The Computer Technology Program offers many courses that apply to other options to afford students the opportunity to explore the many career tracks in Information Technology before selecting a career in Computer Support, Data Base or Networking. The department’s goals are in concert with the college’s goals. Using input from its Industry Advisory Committees and internship course, the department is continually updating and fine tuning its programs of study.
The Database Programming and Administration option prepares students to gather data to determine user requirements and to design and program reports and forms so those users can create queries and interpret results. It also prepares students to determine necessary system changes, to create security procedures, and to implement backup and recovery processes.
Graduates of this option may qualify for entry-level database programming and support positions in a wide range of organizations
Upon Completion of this Concentration Graduates will be able to:
- Write programs to support database applications.
- Design and code complex queries.
- Use a database procedural language to design and code database functions, triggers and collections.
- Qualify with the skill set necessary to take the first level of Oracle Database Certification.
