Computer Technology- Associate in Applied Science

For more information contact the regional campus coordinator for computing programs: on the Hamilton campus at 301 Mosler Hall, 513-785-3132.

The computer technology major continuation option is designed for students who wish to earn an associate degree at the regional campuses and ultimately obtain a bachelor's degree in one of three computing programs that can be completed at the Oxford campus. It allows students to complete an Associate Degree in Applied Science by taking approximately half of the courses for a bachelor's degree in one of the following majors: Computer Science, Software Engineering, or Computer Engineering. After completing the associate degree, students may relocate to the Oxford campus and continue with junior standing. Students who wish to find employment after completing this associate degree are prepared for positions such as computer programmers, system support personnel and other technical computing positions.
