Computer Information Technology - Programming Concentration (CITC PROG)

The goal of the Roane State CITC program is to produce programmers who are effective in all the phases of the software lifecycle and who make sound decisions, manage and solve problems, and integrate into any programming team. CITC students develop applications on multiple platforms and operating systems and are prepared to maintain and deploy applications on the UNIX operating system. Students write extensively in the Java programming language and build Java learning artifacts. They also master skill sets that will prepare them to pass Java Oracle certification. On the server side, students become skilled in the latest NodeJs, ExpressJs to develop the server-side logic and definition and maintain the central database to ensure high performance and responsiveness to requests from the front-end.

Students also learn Oracle Database skills sets and environment. Students learn to maintain the security and the integrity of Oracle databases and train to pass the Oracle Database administration certification. In addition to becoming certified software professionals, students train extensively on a variety of networking and hardware platforms.

CITC graduates are ready to be front-end Web developers because they have designed applications that involve HTML5 and CSS bootstrap components, and have embedded JavaScript code that powers the visuals and interactions of the Web. The curriculum combines technical skills with competencies in ethical decision-making, effective communication, and critical and creative thinking.
