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.

ATC has declined in overall student satisfaction. They are more concerned with getting there enrollment up and not about the student. You have a few instructors who go out of there way to ensure students succeed (Ms. West, Ms. Gladden, Bob Nichols, Laquata Sumter)

Financial Aide is a nightmare. They lose paperwork and do not return phone calls or emails. Due to the current issues I have chosen to go to another school for my degree.

The class overall is okay. However, the school should provide any and all things in relations to diesel technology mechanics in the shop. This would provide the hands on training needed. Also upon completion the school.
