October 12, 2009

Baker College of Port Huron has added an information technology support specialist (ITSS) associate degree program to its roster. Students interested in pursuing this new program may enroll now for winter 2010 quarter.

“Service support in the information technology and information systems fields has been cited as one of the areas that continues to grow despite the current slack in the U.S. economy,” said Connie Harrison, Ph.D., Baker College of Port Huron president. “We are pleased to offer this program on our campus.”

The ITSS program at Baker College of Port Huron focuses on a growing segment of the information technology (IT) market. It provides service and support for software applications configuration, training of users, maintenance of information, and communication processes between a company’s back-end network administrators and middle-to-front line employees and customers.

ITSS program students will learn the content and use of common business software applications and information processes, including word processing, spreadsheet, database operating systems and network connectivity. They will also learn how to install, configure, train other users, troubleshoot and support the software applications.

For graduates of the Baker College of Port Huron information technology support specialist program, employment opportunities include a wide range of occupations within an information systems/information technology (IS/IT) department and the users it serves.
