As both small and large firms across all industries expand and develop their computer systems, there is a growing need for computer support specialists. Graduates of this program can install, test, upgrade, and maintain computer hardware and software as well as troubleshoot hardware and software problems.

They will be ready for employment in computer support, training, or help desk positions. Students will develop the skills and knowledge needed to install, maintain and repair computers. They will also develop critical thinking and communication skills that will be essential for providing high quality support services to computer users. 

In addition to computer applications and computer information systems courses that cover key areas of computer information systems and technology, there are three required courses dedicated to computer support. CSS 112-Hardware Repair and Maintenance and CSS 212-Help Desk and User Support both include hands-on learning experiences. The fourth semester internship (CSS 240) provides opportunities to apply technical concepts and use interpersonal skills.

What's an associate degree?
An associate degree usually takes two years of study and prepares students for employment or transfer to a bachelor’s program at a four-year university.
