Students may be wondering, what is a Preparatory Year in Technology Studies? This program is designed for students who are interested in different areas of technology and would like to explore them more. Each curriculum is different. Some focus on technology in general, while others spend more time on a specific area such as multimedia, engineering, or information technology. Using the computer is a big part of the year, although multimedia projects and classroom discussions may be used as well.

There are a number of benefits to finishing a preparatory year. Students can ease into the rigorous curriculum that many university courses present while building personal strengths. They also build up study habits while earning college credit.

The costs related to a preparatory year will vary from one school to another. The location of the school and specific program requirements are the biggest factors. Students should get in touch with the schools they are interested in to find out what tuition and fees will be involved.

A preparatory year is a stepping stone to a career in technology. Once a degree is earned, graduates can choose from a variety of career opportunities. Some examples of future professions may include programmer, software trainer, web applications developer, systems analyst, or technical support. Hiring organizations could be media companies, engineering companies, or software businesses. Graduates may also choose to further their education and specialize in nanotechnology, biotechnology, or engineering.
