The computer has become the ultimate tool of the workplace, processing information expediently and accurately to help us perform our work more efficiently.
Employment in this ever-changing field has steadily increased. With continued improvements in all phases of computer technology, computer-based information processing has been integrated into virtually every facet of life. Consequently, employment opportunities in the environment are expected to be robust throughout this new century. Hence, regardless of whether a student decides to pursue a computer technology degree from KSU, the need for computer technology classes is stronger and more relevant than ever before.
Kent State University holds to the philosophy that since technical specialists do not work in a vacuum, they should be given a broad-based education that emphasizes communications and interpersonal as well as computer technology classes. The Associated of Applied Business degree in Computer Technology offers a computer technology degree with comprehensive instruction in concentrations of Networking Technology, Application Development, Internet/Multimedia, and General Technology.
