The vision, mission and goals of ECUSTA- MARY HELP COLLEGE – ZWAY guide the academic planning and implementation.
The Bachelor of Science Degree in Information Technology Program aims to provide graduates with sufficient knowledge and skills for general employment, highly skilled careers, entry into postgraduate program and research as well as for life-long learning. It enables the individuals to pair responsibilities, which require great autonomy, with professional decision-making.
The aim of the Department of Information Technology at ECUSTA-MH is to provide IT graduates with the skills and knowledge to take on appropriate professional positions in Information Technology and with the right combination of knowledge and practical, hands-on expertise to take care of both an organization’s information technology infrastructure and the people who use it.
IT specialists assume responsibility for selecting hardware and software products which are appropriate for an organization, integrating those products with organizational needs and infrastructure, and installing, customizing, and maintaining those applications for the organization’s computer users. Examples of these responsibilities include the installation of networks; network administration and security; the design of web pages; the development of multimedia resources; the installation of communication components; the oversight of email systems; and the planning and management of the technology lifecycle by which an organization’s technology is maintained, upgraded, and replaced
