Computer and Information Technology

With every aspect of our lives dependent on computers and information technology, there's a continuing demand for professionals who can set up, program and manage computers, computer peripherals, web sites and local area networks. Northampton's computer and information technology programs help meet that demand by producing graduates who have the latest knowledge and hands-on skills and are well prepared to pursue a bachelor's degree in a related area if that is their goal.

Computer and Information Technology Non-Credit Options

Non-credit courses and certificates are a great way to enhance your skills and grow your knowledge base. Classes can be completed in a shorter timeframe, so you can enter the workforce more quickly while furthering your education. Non-credit classes do not qualify for financial aid, but funding is available through alternative options.

Whether you are using a smart phone, computer, or the enormous database that stores information online, professionals are needed to design software, maintain information systems, and troubleshoot network issues. If you are interested in working with technology in an expanding and innovative environment, consider a career in the fast-growing Information Technology industry.

Graduates of NCC's computer and information technology programs are well prepared to effectively communicate and analyze information related to computer systems, configure and maintain those systems, and develop solutions to programming problems. By working closely with your advisor, you can earn transferable credits that will allow you to enter a four-year institution with the first two years of course material completed. You'll save thousands of dollars on your education in the process.
