The Information Technology Program at Nicolet College will hold two open house sessions Wednesday, March 28, to give prospective students the opportunity to learn about the many different careers in the computer field.
A session for high school students will be held from 1:30 to 3 p.m. The session for adult learners will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Both events will be held in Tamarack Center Room 102 on the Rhinelander campus.
“This will be a great way for anyone considering a career in the computer field to learn more about it,” said Dick Scuglik, Nicolet IT instructor. “We’ll have staff on hand to talk about what the future job market looks like, what it takes to prepare for those jobs, as well as financial aid and scholarship information.”
The college offers two-year associate degrees for Web Analyst/Programmer, and Computer Support Specialist, along with numerous different short-term specialty certificates that can sometimes be earned in as little as one semester. Certificates include Database Management, Desktop Support Technician, Web Programming and Development, Website Development and Support, and the Cisco Certified Network Associate Certificate. Certificate credits can be applied to an associate degree if students wish to continue their college educations.
People attending the open house will receive a coupon that waives the college’s $30 application fee. They’ll also get the chance to enter a drawing to win a prize. Refreshments will be served at this free event.
