Computer Programming and Analysis A.S. Degree

System analysis is the ability to assess the computer or network's capabilities in comparison with the company's or individuals needs. The system analyst then takes that data and creates solutions to meet the requirements.

Computer programmers and application developers create programs to implement those solutions. A program is a series of instructions the computer uses to perform a task or solve a problem.

The Computer Programming and Analysis A.S. Degree teaches you how to:

  • Analyze a system
  • Create programs and business solutions that automate manual systems or improve computerized systems

It is also designed to prepare you for further education, such as a four-year degree or Microsoft certifications.

The program focuses on:

  • Programming Languages and Environments
  • Network Concepts and Administration
  • Microcomputer Software
  • Database Programming and Management

How is the Computer Programming and Analysis A.S. Degree Beneficial?

Computer programming and system analysis are two of the fastest growing occupations in Florida, the United States, and around the world. The Bureau of Labor Statistics ranks each in its top five list of fastest growing positions. A recent survey by the Information Technology Association of America estimates ten percent of the Information Technology (IT) jobs nationwide are unfilled.

Companies, organizations, and individuals are increasingly dependent on computers and the Internet for business and personal activities. Most companies rely on the World Wide Web to remain competitive. They also need computer programs to automate some of their business processes. Each company or individual needs are different. Skilled programmers are needed to:

  • Identify the issues and requirements
  • Create a solution to meet those needs
  • Implement the solution quickly and correctly

Computer programmers and analysts are in high-demand. Professionals who can identify and create solutions for computer and network problems are vital to creating, maintaining, and upgrading successful computer and network systems. Programmers that can create and implement the solutions quickly and efficiently are equally important.
