The Information Systems & Technology Associate of Science degree prepares students for transfer into bachelor’s degree programs at four-year colleges and universities. Graduates have transferred to such prestigious schools as Rutgers University, Seton Hall University, and New Jersey Institute of Technology.

The area of information systems, under the headings of Information Systems (IS) and Information Technology (IT), has become critical to the operation of many organizations. The field has evolved from a cost center to one where IS and IT operations are providing strategic value to corporations. The knowledge required to be effective in this field has also grown. IS and IT staff must understand not only how computers operate, but also how they can be effectively networked together. The use of internet technologies has become pervasive and the database management has also become an integral function.

The Information Systems & Technology Associate of Science degree is designed to provide students who intend to transfer to four-year institutions with a strong and broad background in the area of IS and IT. Key courses are provided in the area of web development, networking, and database development. In addition, the program develops strong programming skills in a programming language of the student’s choice.

Graduates are able to:

  • solve IS and IT problems within the context of business systems.
  • communicate effectively within an organization.
  • work productively in team and individual settings.
  • assess the ethical implications of work performed.
  • demonstrate knowledge of evolving technology.
