Programming Specialist Hybrid E-Degree
All the software we now use wouldn’t exist without the work of programmers. Whether it be for businesses or consumers, programmers “write” programs that are a logical series of instructions that computers can follow. In short, programmers conceive, design, deploy and support programs to execute specific tasks and operate computers.
What can I expect?
As a student in our hybrid e-degree option, you will be exposed to many different programming languages and become fluent in the latest techniques and software related to programming and database design, creation, and maintenance. While completing the Programming Specialist degree, you will take courses that will get you creating desktop and web applications, building databases from the ground up, and will dive into security topics as well as other option-related IT courses.
This specialization is very much, “learning by doing.” During this 18-month program, you will spend around 80% of your time working on projects and will gain real-world experience during your 240-hour internship. Job opportunities are waiting for you as a software developer, computer programmer, and database administrator to only name a few.
How does a Hybrid E-Degree work?
As a Programming Specialist hybrid e-degree student, you’ll take online courses through Lake Area Tech’s eLearning system. Most of your time learning will be done at home but you’ll come to campus occasionally to complete lab and project work and when you do, you’ll be learning in our remodeled Computer Information Systems area!
Why an E-Degree?
Lake Area Tech e-degrees are “hybrid” – an innovative blend of distance and on-campus learning. What’s great about that is you can keep your day job (work, raise kids) and still get a degree. With hybrid education, you get maximum flexibility to study when and where you want, but you’ll still get the chance to learn on-campus with Lake Area Tech instructors on selected projects.
