(Description from the state) Information Technology careers involve the design, development, support and management of hardware, software, multimedia and systems integration services. The IT industry is a dynamic and entrepreneurial working environment that has a revolutionary impact on the economy and society.
In addition to careers in the IT industry, IT careers are available in every sector of the economy - from Financial Services to Medical Services, Business to Engineering and Environmental Services. Anyone preparing for an IT career should have a solid grounding in math and science. Even in times of economic downturn, there is still a large market for people with IT skills in organizations of all sizes. ITAA expects continued growth opportunities within the IT field.
“This gives students the advantage of knowing college level material on a high school level. They learn material that is not part of an everyday curriculum, which prepares them for web design jobs as well troubleshooting HTML and CSS code. This classroom experience prepares them for jobs as Web Page/Site Designers or Developers, Mobile App Developers, Multimedia Specialists, or Web Page Content Managers.”
