Ivy Tech offers new programs

The Indiana Commission for Higher Education has approved new programs within the Ivy Tech Community College School of Computing and Informatics. The Lawrenceburg and Madison campuses will offer two new programs this August, server administration and software development. Information technology support will be offered beginning in August 2015, reported Randy Proffitt, Ivy Tech marketing and communications executive director.

The server administration program is focused on the configuration, management and security of server operating systems, including network security concepts and industry certification preparation. Network and computer systems administrators are responsible for the day-to-day operation of these networks. Employment of these administrators is projected to grow 12 percent from 2012-22, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Growth will be highest at firms that provide cloud computing technology.

The software development program prepares students to develop, test, implement and maintain the computer programs that people use every day with their computers, mobile devices, game consoles and other technological devices. It prepares students to start a career in the fast-changing world of information technology with practical knowledge and skills for an entry-level position in software development. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of software developers is projected to grow 22 percent from 2012-22, much faster than the average for all occupations. The main reason for the rapid growth is a large increase in the demand for computer software.

The information technology support program is designed to prepare students for a professional career in the computer technology field. Students will learn problem-solving techniques for solutions to practical computer related issues, skills in computing technology support similar to that in a helpdesk environment, soft skills needed to interact with and support a diversity of customers and the ability to diagnose problems and walk customers through resolving issues. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of computer support specialists is projected to grow 17 percent from 2012-22, faster than the average for all occupations. More support services will be needed as organizations upgrade their computer equipment and software.

“Computer information technology, security and support are critical elements of almost every organization today,” said Dave Donnell, School of Business interim dean. “We are pleased to offer these new programs to area residents who want to be a part of this exciting field.”
