Client/Server Technologies – The definitions, requirements, benefits and terminology of client/server computing. Topics in this course will cover the client and the server hardware and software components, defining the role and functions of each component; the architecture of distributed processing and the client/server technologies and emerging trends. Students will write applications embodying different forms of client/server relationships including a simple Web application.
Information Systems Project – The course gives students hands-on experience in working with advanced programming tools in designing and building an information system (IS). Projects will be solicited from industry, non-profit organizations and the College or individual faculty members. The course allows students to utilize the knowledge in several areas of information technology and go through the main steps of IS life cycle: planning, design, development, implementation and maintenance. Students are organized in teams for different projects. Students will attend scheduled classes as well as work independently in teams. Students can schedule additional meetings with faculty members.

- Client/Server Technology
- Web Design
- Computer Security
Goals of the Bachelor of Technology in Computer Systems
- Train students to become highly qualified professionals, who can understand, apply, manage, and anticipate cutting-edge technology.
- Prepare marketable candidates for positions in the IT field.
- Teach students communication, problem-solving, and critical-thinking skills
- Provide graduates of related AAS programs in computer systems the opportunity to transfer into our program and earn a BTech degree.
Admission to the Bachelor of Technology Program
There are many ways a student can enter the Bachelor of Technology (BTech) program. Students who enter the program as freshmen must meet the college standards. For more information on these standards see the college website. Students who do not meet these standards may be admitted into the AAS degree program and continue to the BTech program after completing the AAS degree requirements and the CUNY certification in reading, writing and mathematics.
Students may also transfer from other programs within City Tech or from other colleges. It is not necessary to have earned an Associate Degree. Transcripts of entering students will be evaluated to determine the courses they must complete for the Bachelor of Technology (BTech) degree.
