1 RMCC Program Review Institutional Self-Study Program: Computer Systems Technology Academic Year: The AHECB Existing Program Review Policy adopted in October 2008 requires the review of all academic programs every 7-10 years. A major component of the policy is an internal review (self-study) by institutions and an external review by consultants of programs that do not have program-specific accreditation/ licensure/certification. RMCC s Computer Systems Technology (CST), including Computer Forensics (CSF) self-study, consultants written evaluation, and the institution s response to the consultants findings will be submitted to ADHE. This report constitutes the CST self-study to be reviewed by external consultants and subsequently submitted to the AHECB. This report was compiled by CST Instructors Craig Jumper and Kandy Page, Vice-President of Academic Affairs Steve Rook, and Technology Chair Joel Bush. 1 Goals, Objectives, and Activities 1.1 Describe specific educational goals, objectives, and activities of the program. Computer Systems Technology INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY, ASSOCIATE OF APPLIED SCIENCE DEGREE AND CERTIFICATES The Associate of Applied Science Degree in Information Technology enables students to acquire the knowledge and technical skills for entry-level positions in computer information processing, programming, computer operations, networking, database management, and software installation. The curriculum provides a solid foundation in these courses. The program also provides coursework for students pursuing knowledge in computer maintenance and repair, computer databases, and computer forensics. Completion of the appropriate coursework will enable students to prepare for the national exam for A+ certification as a computer technician, sit for the first exam to become an Oracle Certified Professional, or prepare for a career as a computer forensic technician. Program Expectations

2 The Associate of Applied Science Degree is designed for students who plan to seek employment upon graduation. The programs prepare the graduates to enter a job, be productive with a minimum of onthe-job training and, with additional experience advance to positions of increased responsibility. The Associate in Applied Science Degree program in Information Systems Technology is designed for persons who seek employment in the information technology field immediately upon graduation and for those who desire to transfer to a four-year school in pursuit of a baccalaureate degree. Persons seeking initial employment in the field and those who are seeking advancement in their current positions will benefit from the program. This degree is designed to provide the greatest amount of flexibility in selecting courses based on the individual's interests and aptitude.

Rate Source: 1.4 Document student demand for the program. Today's demand in the work force for marketable skills in computer systems technology, both locally and nationally, are at high levels. Demand by employers has increased since the perceived glut of the early 2000 led students away from commuter training. There is now a deficit of trained employees and this is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. Rich Mountain Community College is offering courses in Computer Systems Technology that will prepare today's student with the skills to meet this demand. The courses are the perfect start for the beginning student and, for those already in the work force, the courses will upgrade their present skills. These students will gain the skills to meet the demand of today's work place. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for all types of computer careers is expected to increase 18-19% from 2010 to (http://data.bls.gov/search/query/results?cx= %3a6ih0hfrgl50&q=co mputer+technology+inurl%3abls.gov%2fooh%2f) Student demand is evidenced by an increase in the number of inquiries and students registering for computer courses.

7 2 Curriculum 2.1 Describe how program content parallels current thinking/trends in the field/trade (best practices, advisory committee recommendations, etc.). Computer equipment used in the Computer Systems Technology program is comparable or better than that found in the offices of our local employers. Laboratory computers are scheduled for replacement after two years with one-half being replaced in any given year. This policy is reinforced by the Strategic Plan of the College. Computer software installation follows the introduction of these programs into our local workplaces. The student will therefore be learning on the software used by employers for their training. The input from our Advisory Committee is key to maintaining current hardware and software. 2.2 Provide an outline for each program curriculum, including the sequence of courses.
