Computer Studies

Wor-Wic’s computer studies programs are designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to provide technical support in the computer field. Students who excel in these programs can take various industry-recognized certification examinations.

The computer studies transfer degree program has two areas of concentration: game development and information systems. These transfer programs are designed for students who want to transfer to a four-year college or university and work toward a bachelor’s degree in these areas. To ensure maximum transferability, students should familiarize themselves with the program requirements of the institution to which they plan to transfer.

Courses in the computer and network support technology degree concentration focus on hardware and software configurations as they relate to computer network installation, configuration and security. Students learn how to design and implement computer networks, taking into account issues of cybersecurity and information security. The web development degree concentration is designed to prepare students for employment in software- and internet-related jobs. It emphasizes programming, maintenance of the internet and webpage development.

The computer information security and web development certificate programs provide basic hardware, software and internet knowledge to support users. The course work for the web development certificate can be completed online.
