Program yourself into a new career, with several different options! From learning how to do computer networking to becoming a cybersecurity wizard, our computer and information technology courses will help land you a skilled job in a growing field.

Computers run the world, but as we all know, they often need to be repaired by humans. Jobs in coding, networking and systems administration are needed in all industries where computer technology is used. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs in Information Technology are growing well above average rates of all other occupations, with 11% growth expected from 2019 to 2029. These are jobs that pay well — for example, the average salary for an IT technician is $64,583 in Texas. Not too shabby!
