Prospective students who enjoy problem solving and troubleshooting, and are good communicators may enjoy a career in information technology. Information technology or IT involves the use of computers and software to manage information. In today's advanced technological environment, the field of information technology includes a broad spectrum of careers, including computer network systems, software development, cybersecurity, information systems, and mobile communication.
Information technology (IT) workers can be found in many types of organizations. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, "In the modern workplace, it is imperative that Information Technology (IT) works both effectively and reliably." IT is an academic discipline that continues to evolve as computers and communication technology change.
Some ITT Technical Institutes offer degree programs in several different areas of IT through the School of Information Technology. The associate and bachelor degree programs are designed to help students develop skills and knowledge that they can use to pursue entry-level careers in positions involving information technology. Online degree programs are also available for students to pursue their educational objectives when attending school in a traditional classroom is not practical.
