10ftcc IT Students interested in database management can earn an associate degree in information technology from Fayetteville Technical Community College. IT teaches students the fundamentals of areas including networking, security and programming. In addition to these fundamentals, FTCC’s Database Management program emphasizes the student learning what a database is and how it functions on both the user side and the administration side.

Students will take classes in Oracle, MySQL and MS SQL Server. Graduates are prepared to work in the IT field providing support to database administrators who organize and protect an organization’s data and keep the data-driven applications performing at their best. Data are at the heart of almost any organization. Business decisions are based on data. It’s important that the data are accurate, accessible and secure.

Database Management students will qualify for entry-level positions with businesses, educational systems, government agencies and any other entities that rely heavily on computer systems to manage their data.

The Information Technology PC Support & Services program at FTCC introduces students to just about all areas of the IT discipline. Students take courses in networking, programming and security, but they focus on hardware and software. Students will learn how to disassemble and build PCs from scratch. They will learn how to build virtual machines and install operating systems, and they will learn the necessary troubleshooting techniques for repairing PC hardware and software issues.

Degrees in IT can open the door to numerous job opportunities and job fields, especially in light of North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park. This curriculum prepares students for employment as troubleshooters responsible for solving problems and providing technical support and advice to customers and users in just about any sector, including hospitals, educational institutions, retail establishments and government and state organizations.

In addition to associate degree programs, FTCC offers several certificate programs of study. Students can complete certificate programs more quickly than associate degree programs. Certificate programs are condensed to promote focus on one particular area of interest. They are ideal for individuals seeking additional career training.

FTCC also offers educational opportunities for high school students. There are many certificates available to students enrolled in High School Connections and Cumberland Polytechnic High School at FTCC.
