Computing and Technology

Stay on the cutting edge.

Information technology touches all aspects of our lives: how we work, how we make decisions, how we communicate, and how we entertain ourselves. These days, to be successful in almost any profession—from business to law, health care, finance or education—you need to know how to use and manage technologies. Our diverse selection of data analytics, computing and technology courses will help you navigate and advance your way through your career. You will learn how to make your workplace more productive, secure and connected.

Blended technology courses

Back for its second year, our newly revised selection of five courses on the subject of Business Intelligence and Data Analytics are scheduled to start in September 2019. In response to student feedback from the pilot offering in 2018, we have expanded the curriculum from three courses to five, and we have made adjustments that will provide you with knowledge, skills and ability that employers seek and value. 

Online technology courses

We offer a variety of online courses for professionals wanting to enhance their knowledge of technology and information systems. View our upcoming course schedule.

Community courses

We also offer community courses on leading edge topics such as coding, social media and animatronics.
