Computer and Information Technology- Associate in Applied Science

For more information, contact the CIT Department Office on the Hamilton campus at 301 Mosler Hall, 513-785-3132.

Computer and Information Technology focuses on the development and support of computing and networked systems. Computing knowledge and skills are vital for professional success in any field and there will always be a need for technically skilled professionals. The Computer and Information Technology Associate Degree program provides two concentrations essential to contemporary computing, both leading to an Associate Degree in Applied Science with a major in Computer and Information Technology.

The Networking concentration prepares students to design, install, troubleshoot, and support secure computer networks. The Software Development and Support concentration prepares students to design and create software in a variety of current programming languages and to support application programs and systems.  Both concentrations provide a foundation of critical analysis, problem solving, and technical and interpersonal communication skills, all of which are critical for success in any technical position.
