Since the use of computers has become increasingly commonplace, the need for personnel to help government and industry utilize this tool more effectively continues to grow. This area of study prepares students to be the technical people who design, build, and manage computer information systems. Some of the occupations which rely on a firm knowledge of computer systems are programmer, information center specialist, liaison with user departments, and office automation analyst. This program is designed to transfer to a Bachelor of Science degree at UMBC, where various upper-level courses would then be taken.
