Academic Experience: My program is online. Hopefully things will be okay

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: I am an Internet Specialist - Web Design student almost complete with my Associate's degree. They have changed my program twice in the time that I have been in it, therefore many of the courses I have taken are no longer required. In general, it's a fun major, if it is truly something you're into. But they require certain courses to graduate that don't exactly have anything to do with the major itself (such as Program Design and Development, Java Application Programming, and Information Security Fundamentals); although they may very much help you in the future if you learn/study the material.

Albany Tech is a tech school, therefore they are very hands on with labs and such. But courses such as Information Security do have a distinct work load. It's better to take classes as such in class and take advantage of the hands on training. Many courses are required to be taken in class for proper training and understanding. The classes are split between three or four teachers, depending on which major under Computer Information Systems you are studying; and my classes usually have ten people or less.

I have not yet found or been given internship/job opportunities for my major, and not sure I will due to the area in which I live; but other CIS majors such as Network Specialists have a definite chance just about anywhere.

Academic Experience: Interview With Others Taking Taking the Same Course – Academically I am impressed with the instruction and course loads. impressed with the availability of the professors and staff in general. After interviewing other students and alumni of Albany Technical College, helped me in my decision to attend this institution.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: Instructors Are Highly Knowledgable – The workload is fair; but, I entered in what I thought was a completely online program and later found I there is one course I need that is not offered online. I was not told about this until I have almost completed the program and now i have to go an extra semester to finish.
