Courses in the Computer Information Technology core are chosen to develop specialization in a selected skill area; the curriculum's first year lays the framework for basic systems and applications, while the second year allows the student to choose from five areas of specialized learning: Networking, Security, Administration, Programming and Application Development. Students may also wish to complete multiple specializations; doing so will add one year of full-time study, and the student will finish with multiple associate's degrees.
