2017-2018 Academic Catalog

IT - Systems Analysis, Associate of Applied Science

Degree:

Associate of Applied Science

Overview

Systems Analysts are like software architects. They have to understand as much about the business processes of their company as they do about programming. Similar to the relationship of an architect and a general contractor, the systems analyst has to understand programming concepts, but usually does not actually do the programming.

Career Opportunities

Companies are eager to hire people with understanding and skills necessary to manage technology.
