Minneapolis, Minn., June 6, 2013 — Dunwoody College of Technology has received official approval from the Higher Learning Commission to offer a bachelor’s completion program in Computer Systems Analysis. The degree will focus on the ability to analyze procedures, methods, and uses of computer systems. It is specifically designed for working professionals who have completed a two-year degree in Information Technology, including fields such as computer networking or programming. The program will launch in August 2013, and courses will take place in the evening.
“We wanted to do a four-year IT degree the Dunwoody way,” said Rob Bentz, program manager for Computer Technology. “Which means we focus on applied learning and the skills graduates of our two-year programs—or of similar programs— need to move into more senior positions in the industry.”
Coursework includes such topics as IT security, management information systems and computer architecture. Students also have a choice of electives in networking, software or data architecture.
Computer Systems Analysis is the fourth Dunwoody bachelor’s completion program to be approved, joining Applied Management, Construction Management and Industrial Engineering Technology. The College also offers a four-year degree in Interior Design.
