UNVEILS ASSOCIATE AND BACHELOR’S DEGREES IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
The advanced technologies used in today’s workplace are constantly evolving and being reinvented, forcing professionals in the field to know how to effectively implement these new systems and processes into their organizations. To provide students with the most up-to-date IT strategies and processes, Strayer University will begin offering the new Associate in Arts in Information Technology and Bachelor of Science in Information Technology degree programs in the Summer Quarter.
The BSIT will provide students with the skills and practical knowledge needed to effectively design, integrate and administer computer-based technologies that are used to powertoday’s companies. Strayer University worked to align its curriculum with the guidelines provided by the Association for Computing Machinery, the world’s largest scientific and educational computing society.
“This innovative program will provide students with many hands-on labs and simulations to help them better understand today’s technologies and effectively manage technology-driven environments in their workplace,” says Dr. Bill Dafnis, dean of Strayer University’s School of Information Systems and Technology.
The new bachelor’s degree program will incorporate live computing labs from Microsoft Official Academic Course material and EC-Council’s iLab environment for security courses, providing students with the latest software and systems as well as access to hands-on experiences through skills-based labs.
These interactive online platforms will give students the chance to work in a live cloud-based environment, where they can use Microsoft and other products that will be available at any time.
“Our students will immediately be able to apply these new technologies and software in real-world settings,” Dr. Dafnis says. “The ability for students to work in a live serveris hugely beneficial to their careers.”
