Why study Information Technology?
The Information Technology certificate prepares students to learn the fundamentals of object-oriented programming using an industry-standard programming language as well as the fundamentals of database design and systems administration. Students will have the option to choose an IT elective from a range of IT areas such as web design and development, database administration and networking to further their technical skills.
This program is open to all students with a high school diploma or GED. Although admission is open, students accepted into the program must meet the academic standards of the program to advance to upper levels of study. Interested students should meet with a UC Clermont College Advising staff member for appropriate advising. Please note: In order to obtain this certificate, 50 percent or more of the required coursework must be taken from UC Clermont.
To succeed in IT, you must think logically and pay close attention to detail. The job calls for patience, persistence and the ability to work on exacting analytical work, especially under pressure. Ingenuity and creativity are particularly important. The ability to work with abstract concepts and to do technical analysis is especially important. Because you are expected to work in teams and interact directly with computer users, you must be able to communicate well with non-technical personnel.
