Information technology (IT) is rapidly becoming as important to career entry and advancement as oral and written communication. In fact, recruiting experts believe that even a small amount of technology savvy and knowledge opens doors for anyone entering today’s work place. This certificate is ideal for students who enjoy working with computers but do not wish to seek a degree in either computer science or information systems. It is also ideal for students who have already completed a bachelor’s degree and seek the latest IT expertise. Students with degrees in fields such as accounting, biology, foreign language, English, and sociology will find that the addition of these important IT skills will make them far more marketable.
The IT certificate will offer KSU students knowledge and experience with the latest tools and technologies. Topics include web technologies, database technologies, and electronic commerce. Students are required to receive at least a “C” in courses in order to receive the certificate.
