Mission & Goals

Mission

The Information Technology Department offers a transfer degree; five career degrees, some with a transfer option to NJIT; two one-year certificates; and a certificate of achievement. These programs provide a basic background in hardware, applications, networking, and Internet concepts.

The Information Technology Program strives to prepare the student for a career involving business programming, medical informatics, network administration, network security, web development, database programming and administration, computer support, or the effective use of computers in a modern office. All programs provide a basic background in applications and Internet concepts. Additionally, the program provides a solid foundation for future study towards a four-year degree.

What makes IT at Bergen so special?

Information Technology students need to develop a broad foundation in concepts that will help them remain adaptable in a changeable marketplace. The INF program at Bergen Community College addresses current and long-term trends in the marketplace. A number of INF courses are available over the Internet as part of the College's distance learning programs.
