Computing and Technology

Stay on the cutting edge of technology.

Information technology touches all aspects of our lives: how we work, how we communicate, 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 computing and technology courses will help you learn to manage and navigate the latest technologies, from cloud and mobile computing to web development to IT security and digital identity management. You'll learn how to make your workplace more productive, more secure and more connected.
