Degree Overview

computer technology degree

Computer Technology & Networking

Information technology (IT) is an integral part of modern life, and inextricable from modern business. IT techs keep information systems online and operational. They maintain the company’s computers at every level, including the efficient transmission of information, and the storage and analysis of information. IT techs are among the most important positions in the workplace.

Associate of Applied Science in Computer Technology and Networking

The Associate of Applied Science in Computer Technology and Networking at California College San Diego teaches students the skills they may need to maintain a networked system of computers throughout a company. This program provides a solid foundation for students to handle problems ranging from hardware issues to performance bugs to internet technology crises. Students can come away confident that they can handle the day-to-day maintenance of a computer system.

Computer Technology and Networking Job Outlook

Unsurprisingly, the employment of computer support specialists is expected to grow by 18 percent through 2020.

Many entry-level positions require only a computer-related associate’s degree. Graduates with a computer technology degree have the credentials that may be needed for entry-level opportunities as a computer support specialist, network administrator, computer repair technician, user support technician, or hardware and software trainer. A bachelor's degree in computer science, computer engineering, or information systems may be a requirement for some jobs, but that does not have to limit you from beginning your career a couple of years sooner.
