Ivy Tech to offer new computing, informatics programs

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Ivy Tech Community College says software development is among seven new programs it will offer in its School of Computing and Informatics beginning in August.

Ivy Tech announced Thursday that the Indiana Commission for Higher Education has approved the new programs and they'll be offered at select campuses across the state.

The new programs also include informatics, information technology support, network infrastructure, database management, server administration and cyber security-information assurance.

Ivy Tech says a task force of business and industry information technology leaders helped guide development of the programs.

It says the programs have options for students to transfer to four-year universities so they can pursue bachelor's degrees.

Ivy Tech serves nearly 200,000 students statewide.

  • A good development...
    However, IvyTech really needs to expand the available internships and increase its job placement performance. I know several graduates with Ivy Tech degrees that couldn't find work following graduation, mainly due to lack of experience.
