The two-year Systems Administration options leads to Associate in Applied Science (AAS or AAS-T) degree that prepares students for immediate employment or continued education in the field of Information Technology. This degree also offers short term (one year or less) which are subsets of the two-year degree. Students may enroll in individual classes for retraining, updating skills, or preparing for IT industry certifications.
Students may also take pre-major Computer Science classes that transfer to four-year degree programs as part of the Computer Science Associate DTA – Arts & Science (AAS) DTA. The Computer Science department has direct BAS articulation agreements with CWU and other universities. Contact the Computer Science department faculty for detailed advising.
Certificates are short-term training options that prepare students with the skills necessary to obtain entry level employment and complete computer industry certifications and exams. If desired, students can continue training and apply all earned credits to the Associate in Applied Science degrees.
Program Prerequisites: The Computer Science Program prerequisites are basic computer literacy, keyboarding, and familiarity with word processing and spreadsheet software; pre-college math and English courses may be required depending on student placement level.
