Computer Technology

Students who pursue a computer technology degree will learn the most current skills, techniques and systems to advance themselves in the world of computers. Computer technology graduates can find jobs in six major computer fields: systems analysts, computer programmers, network specialists, multimedia developers, web masters and computer operators.

  • Computer programmers write, test and maintain detailed software packages that computer must follow to perform their functions.
  • Programmers break down each step into a mathematical formula in order to write programs, which computers use to function. Programmers also update and modify existing programs.
  • System analysts oversee the design process for new software or hardware. These professionals examine an organization's computer system, determine if its system is operating at its maximum capacity and provide networking assistance if needed.
  • Network specialists are responsible for the security and administration of the overall operation of the computing environment. They also are responsible for monitoring systems to make sure that equipment is functioning properly and resources are available when users need them.
  • Multimedia developers work with computer information systems, graphics and delivery protocols for software. They design web portals for online learning programs, video games and interactive websites.
  • Web masters/developers combine programming with design to create sites and pages for the Internet.
  • Other computer operator-related fields include database administrators and technical support specialists.
