Our BS in Computer Information Technology allows students to customize their degrees based on individual skills and passion for the IT field.
Powershell scripting courses may offer students the unique opportunity to gain the real-world network administration experience necessary to create and run reusable scripts in a variety of network environments to complete repetitive and complex tasks within an organization of any size.
Earn your industry certifications and degree simultaneously. Available industry certifications include MOS, CompTIA A+, CompTIA Net+, CCNA, MCP, CompTIA Security +, & CompTIA Linux+.
Choose the Computer Information Technology pathway if you are looking for a versatile degree that is adaptable to a wide variety of technology-focused careers within any type of organization.
Electives allow students to integrate cybersecurity, networking, database management, or software programming skills to design a degree that customizes the learning experience to support the overall goals of each individual student.
Students may learn how to break down business problems to determine an appropriate IT solution, then create a viable pathway for the full-scale implementation process, including training of personnel and ongoing maintenance planning.
What Sets Hodges U Apart?
If you are looking to study computer-related degrees, you probably want to know why you should attend Hodges U. Our programs are uniquely designed to ready you to deliver results on complex, IT-related projects.
Industry-related IT courses that are formulated to build essential knowledge as students proceed through their chosen degree pathways.
Interactive learning is at the core of each of our IT courses. Hodges U takes active learning to a whole new level by providing simulation labs, virtual machines, and virtual networks for students to test their skills and knowledge before they are asked to perform in the workplace.
Every student is introduced to the basics of programming using Java and learns to apply programming concepts to complete very basic software development tasks. Students get the opportunity to write simple programs that exemplify the cohesion of software functionality with network installations and security protocols.
Project management is integrated into every IT degree program in order to promote the skills that will help students to manage multiple simultaneous IT projects found in today’s work environments.
Students may take industry certification exams at Hodges U at a reduced student rate, either as a stand-alone certification or as part of their coursework. Upon graduation, students could also receive skill-specific certificates in addition to their degree diplomas.
Each BS Information Technology Degree ends with the Systems Analysis & Solutions Architecture course. This course provides students the opportunity to showcase their understanding of how to transform business requirements through the entire systems development life cycle to produce a finalized plan for the implementation of an integrated information system within an organization, thus providing evidence that the student is ready to take on an IT job within their specified field.
Women in Technology
Paving the way for women in tech fields everywhere!
At the Fisher School of Technology, we believe that the inclusion of all individuals, including women and those from underrepresented populations in STEM, is critical for the continued growth and success of the IT field.
Look at it this way, technology corporations of the future are looking for new and innovative ideas that work for everyone. Without the input of technology-focused women in leadership roles, the development of products we use every day falls short of meeting the needs of the women who use them.
“What many people don’t understand is that computing is the foundation of just about every other Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) discipline,” said Lanham. At Hodges University, the Fisher School of Technology offers degrees that help students develop the skills needed to make a positive impact in the technology sectors of our business community.
It has been shown that girls do not pursue technology careers at the same rate as their male counterparts because they are not exposed to computer hardware, software, and coding at a young enough age to pursue computer information technology degrees. Instead of coming into the college environment with similar knowledge as their counterparts, women feel behind and end up abandoning what could be an excellent career pathway.
