The Information Technology programs provide students with an experience that will directly prepare them for employment.

A capstone experience including an internship at an area business helps to anchor the student's academic experience.

The Information Technology program is intended for students who, upon graduation from SUNY Adirondack, wish to enter the workforce in entry-level information systems positions within the Information Technology field. Its focus is in integrating the use and advantages presented by Information Technology within the corporate organization. Students completing the two-year degree would be entering the workforce as junior-level programmers/systems analysts and computer operators. Recommended high school preparation: Three years of mathematics.
