Administrative Information Management and Technology
Associate in Applied Science
HEGIS #5005
Chairperson: James G. Looby
Brahan Hall, Room 206, (518) 629-7225

Today’s office and technical assistant needs a variety of skills to keep pace with the emergent and transitory technical workplace. The Administrative Information Management and Technology A.A.S. program is a relevant, up-to-date curriculum designed for students to gain the skills necessary to become an administrative office professional or technical assistant in either the public or private sector. The program’s course work provides a foundation in information management and technology that includes document preparation, spreadsheets, databases, business communications, office management, desktop publishing and Web design and prepares the students for the Microsoft Certified Application Specialist (MCAS) and Internet and Core Computing (IC3) exams. It must be noted that the program goes far beyond computer skills and knowledge of office software, as course content also focuses on ethics, security and the necessary soft and collaboration skills needed in the technical workplace. The program concludes with an industry internship.

Full-time students who wish to complete this program in exactly four terms of study must begin their studies in the fall semester and complete five to six courses each term. Degree requirements can be completed through either full-time or part-time study through on campus or distance learning courses.

All AITC, CMPT, and CISS courses must have been taken within seven years in order to be applicable toward this degree program.
