Welcome to the Department of Information Technologies


 

Nyack’s Information Technologies major is designed to prepare students to become accomplished professional Christian leaders and good stewards in technology management, data and analysis. The major trains up students with a solid foundation in current methods, languages, tooling and processes that prepares the graduate with relevant skills for entering the workplace.  Each class will build upon another using a common programming language, ways to explore data and leadership qualities such as clear communication skills often lacking in computer science programs.  The goal is to prepare the graduate for that all-important interview where they can demonstrate through articulate presentation a confidence in today’s information technology careers and display a working knowledge of current tools that help to provide solutions to businesses and industry.

“The computer science department at Nyack College played a great part in getting me to where I am today. I was hired right before graduation. I received constant encouragement and inspiration from not only the teachers within the department but from the other computer science students as well. Nothing was better than late night collaborations in the lab for a project that was due the following day.” Philip Nevill, Class of 2016
