Graduates with the AAS degree in CIT may pursue careers in information technology in a range of industries including PC repair, hardware/software support, computer assembly, computer network support and administrative support. Graduates may also seek front-line careers in software and computer retail, technology instruction and banking.

Students also learn to create websites and use online resources for research and communication. Hands-on training is offered in network cable assembly, PC repair, assembly and troubleshooting. Students learn various methods to secure information through software and hardware devices.
In the second year of study students learn how to administer a PC-based environment through administrator and user privileges, design and develop a business solution using advanced spreadsheet techniques and relational database systems and complete a system project.
Instruction at the Davie campus will include Office 2010 and Windows 7.
In addition to the technical skills, students also learn the appropriate business ethics in regard to working in an information technology field.
