Our graduates have hands-on learning opportunities in software development, storage, information networks and management, human/computer interfaces, cyber security, mobile app development and electronic multi-media. In addition to some of the highest job placement rates, many of our students have opportunities to advance rapidly in their careers.

We’ve had graduates with media emphases go on to work in the content side of the information industry with companies like Fox Sports, HGTV, KWCH, Time Warner Cable, Eagle Communications, NBCUniversal and many regional network affiliates around the country. Entrepreneurial students leaving our programs have successfully marketed commercial apps to companies such as eBay or started their own technology or website business, like majorspoilers.com.
