Want to add technology skills to your resume? Whether you are a current student at Colorado Women's College or already have a bachelor's degree, the Information Technology Certificate will provide you with a complete course of study in computing, from computing fundamentals to programming to systems design and implementation. Additionally, the certificate is available to students who have previously earned a baccalaureate degree in another field and wish to add a technology credential to their portfolios.
Students can elect to concentrate in the following areas:
- Web Design & Development: where students gain an understanding of usability, and all the tools and techniques available to develop effective web sites
- Business Analysis for IT Projects: business analysis is the set of tools, techniques and knowledge to identify business needs and recommend IT solutions. It is focused on the "what" of an IT project – what do the stakeholders need? What should we build? The classes are based on the core competencies identified by the International Institute of Business Analysis.
- IT Project Development: this is for those students who want to experience an IT project from inception as an idea, through to implementation. Based on a need from a real client, students, working as teams, will design and develop an IT solution. Students will define the scope, develop a project plan, assign roles and responsibilities, create a risk management plan and track progress for their project. IT experience and an interview with the program director is required for this certificate
