Integrated Learning in Studio Classes

Students will connect the dots between what they are learning through required studio classes. This time is used to combine concepts, fundamentals and skills obtained during each semester of the computer systems technology program so that students can experience how their education fits together and is applied to real-world projects.

Hands-On Education Equals Professional Portfolio

Demonstrate to future employers you have the education AND expertise to be a vital asset to their company through our philosophy of interactive learning. In the computer systems technology program, you will connect concepts learned in the classroom with problem-solving projects and real-world industry assignments, building for yourself a professional portfolio even before you walk across the stage at graduation.

Stay Current with Emerging Technologies

The digital world is in constant motion, so your education must include a focus on present trends and emerging technologies. Building on the foundation of computer fundamentals students first learn, you will explore current web standards and platforms like mobile devices. You also will be encouraged to take technology a step further by experimenting with upcoming innovations.

“In the computer systems technology program, we are committed to providing the realism and industrial relevance that is often lacking in college. It’s paramount that our students are able to connect the dots between the different concepts they learn and then apply that knowledge to real-world assignments. Many of the professors are involved in industry-sponsored projects, which they bring into the classroom so that students get professional experience.”

“Technology changes very quickly in this industry, so one of the most rewarding parts of my job is guiding students through the fundamentals of the program and helping them discover how the more advanced topics build on those base concepts. We’ve also recently transformed the computer systems curriculum, incorporating studio classes that help produce a professional portfolio, among other things. This maximizes our students’ expertise and the potential of them landing a job right after graduation.”

“What I enjoyed the most about being a Kansas State Polytechnic student were the small class sizes, personable faculty and the opportunity to work with real clients. Because my computer classes were more intimate, professors were able to interact with students one-on-one and offer help whenever I needed it, giving me the tools to succeed. Whether it was executing projects for actual companies, working outside of the classroom or taking part in lab time, I always kept busy learning new things that I can now apply to my job.”

Tyler Kongs

“One of the most important things I realized when I was studying networking and programming is the value of a hands-on education. At K-State Polytechnic, my classes went beyond theory and connected me with actual clients for which I designed and built an application from the ground up. Often times, the IT department is the backbone of a company, and as an IT professional, I have the ability to affect millions of people. Because of this interactive learning style, I was fully prepared for an internship I received and it turned into a job offer after graduation.”
