Online Technology & IT Degrees and Careers
Technology is progressing at such a rate that it is necessary to break it down into smaller areas of specialization. 'Technology convergence' is a fairly new development, where technologies are combined providing several applications; e.g. mobile telephones, which now have Internet capabilities.
Many courses overlap, and some programs offer a broad education in the field allowing successful candidates to specialize at a later date. Since there is a wide variation in course offerings between colleges, it is important that information technology candidates check the curriculum to ensure that specific areas of interest are covered. A solid background in math, a basic understanding of the Internet, and attention to detail may be an advantage in web development and information technology.
