Associate of Science (Computer Information Systems)

Computer technology is updated and improved upon on a daily, even hourly, basis in the 21st century. Bermuda College’s Associate of Science (Computer Information Systems) is reviewed regularly to incorporate the changes and updates in the technology field. IT specialisation and e-commerce courses have been added to the core curriculum. Further, the programme’s curriculum equips students with the same level of competency as demonstrated by the internationally recognised certifications of A+, Network+, iNet+, CCNA, GIAC/GSEC, MCP and MOUS.

The foundation of the programme is the study of computer applications in the business environment. It also includes a mandatory internship between the first and second years of study, providing hands-on experience in
local and international companies.
