Students who major in Computing and Information Technology can choose courses that provide preparation for positions such as:
  • Business Systems Analyst

Internships for real-life experience
All Computing and Information Technology majors complete at least one semester-long internship at a local business, agency or research site. You might be involved in Web-site development, or in system implementation and maintenance. Your assignment may be as a project leader, or assisting an organization through a computer conversion by use of effective communication, training and change management.

Your internship is where you'll gain the hands-on experience of what a working computer specialist does, with direction from an on-site mentor. You'll also make career contacts you can use for jobs or additional experience. During your internship, you'll meet regularly with a faculty instructor and other interns in a seminar at Alverno to discuss problems, reflect on experiences and celebrate advances.
