This program is an introduction to the broad field of business information systems and computer programming. Classes in Visual Basic and Role Playing Games (RPG) emphasize business applications, and the programming emphasis is on Visual Studio.Net, Java, RPG IV, and data access through Structured Query Language (SQL). Web development is a recurring theme in many of the classes. This degree opens the door to a number of jobs, including web developer, application programmer, business systems analyst, and operations personnel.
The program requires extensive work in the computer lab, and all students must complete an internship off-site in order to graduate.
You’ll be required to have basic computer skills and experience in word processing, file handling, and spreadsheets to be admitted to this program. You’ll also need to be a good listener, an excellent reader, and have an understanding of high school algebra.
