The Smart Way to be Undecided

Can’t decide between Engineering Technology, Information Technology and Software Information Systems? With the flexibility of our Undecided Option**, you’ll not only be armed with the Tech Core experience, but will be exposed to all three areas of interest to help guide your specialization choice. That’s flexibility – and a smart way to prepare for your future.

Specializations

To help prepare you for specific career fields, we offer three specializations with in the Associate of Information Technology and Networking degree program:

Program Coursework

This program is anchored with Tech Core, a curriculum designed to help you build a foundation of interdisciplinary skills across three areas of interest – Engineering Technology, Information Technology and Software and Information Systems. When you choose an associate degree program in Information Technology and Networking, your coursework at DeVry University may include these courses:

Introduction to Technology and Information Systems

Introduction to Programming

Introduction to Digital Devices

Fundamentals of Information Technology & Networking

Introduction to Technology and Information Systems

This course introduces the basics of the Internet of Things (IoT) and characterizes the way that People, Places, Data, and Devices (P2D2) work together. The basics of networking, computing, and electronic devices as applied to IoT are the focus as students’ problem solving skills are developed.

Introduction to Programming

This introductory programming course presents the basic elements of programming, including variables, expressions, conditionals, and functions, and then uses these elements to create simple interactive applications. Program specification design, documentation, and validation are also covered.

Introduction to Digital Devices

This course explores digital concepts, devices and connectivity within the realm of the Internet of Things (IoT). The basics of networking, computing, and digital devices are further explored. Practical application of IoT systems and concepts are accomplished throughout the course. IoT solutions are derived to solve industry or societal problems from a global perspective.

Fundamentals of Information Technology & Networking

This course introduces the underlying technology of networks and the Internet. Networking basics such as the OSI and TCP/IP models, protocols routers, switches, small network configuration, troubleshooting, and network security are introduced.

Many Ways to Learn
