Computer Information Technology (AS)

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.

Students who pursue an associate degree graduate ready to contribute as members of a technology team and are knowledgeable about web design and systems, systems administration, and have built a programming skills foundation. 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.

Students with an Associate of Science in Computer Information Technology will be able to:

  • Demonstrate fluency in multiple programming languages
  • Be able to develop and manage complete websites
  • Understand the design and implementation of computer networking
  • Understand basic principles for developing and deploying high quality software systems
  • Understand how to manage systems, including UNIX-based computers
  • Demonstrate a solid background in business processes
  • Understand the historical and social context of information technology

Students, in conjunction with the department chair, may develop a sequence of courses to best meet their backgrounds and needs that still satisfies the degree requirements. A typical curriculum taken by students is shown here.
