Information technology and Computer Science Programs

More and more people in the U.S. today are seeing the values of studying for a degree. Computer systems design and related disciplines are some of the fastest-growing industries today. Computer systems analysts, database administrators, and computer scientists are expected to be some of the fastest growing jobs through 2012 (U.S. Department of Labor).

E-commerce, the Internet and the need for secure databases will continue to expand. In the current climate of social and economic insecurity "cyber security" will continue to grow. While there has been a slump in some areas of I.T., there is no doubt that information technology now rules most areas of our lives. For all of these reasons, an information technology degree can only be a smart move.

What is information technology?
Information Technology (IT) covers everything from designing software and managing information systems to training and supporting those who use them. It can be highly technical or very people-orientated and offers a diverse range of career opportunities in public service, commerce, hospitals, industry, education, and the media.

The list of possible jobs is constantly increasing, including the likes of software engineer, applications developer; customer support and service staff; computer systems support worker; network manager; database administrator, and web-site developer. There are two-year associate degrees, four-year bachelor’s degrees, and masters available in these subjects.

Since there are new developments to I.T. every day, you can never stop learning. Once you are working in the area you can augment your skills with post-graduate certifications and degrees in marketable, specialist subjects. Whether studied online to fit in with your life and job, or full-time straight from high-school, an information technology degree will put you on ahead of many other graduates in the race for well-paid entry-level positions and promotions.
