Student Learning Outcomes for Academic Programs

A.A.S. in Internet and Information Technology 

General Education Outcomes

A robust general education is founded on the knowledge, concepts, methods, and perspectives that students gain through the study of many academic disciplines. These disciplinary studies stimulate intellectual inquiry, global awareness, and cultural and artistic appreciation: they equip students to make informed judgments and remain engaged beyond the classroom. To that end, QCC promotes educational activities that allow students to demonstrate that they can:

  1. Communicate effectively in various forms
  2. Use analytical reasoning to identify issues or problems and evaluate evidence in order to make informed decisions
  3. Reason quantitatively as required in various fields of interest and in everyday life
  4. Apply information management and digital technology skills useful for academic research and lifelong learning
  5. Apply scientific methods and reasoning to investigate issues or problems in the natural and social sciences in order to draw conclusions

To support these institutional general education outcomes, the academic departments-;through their programs-may also assess the ability of students to:

  • Integrate knowledge and skills in the program of study
  • Make ethical judgments while recognizing multiple perspectives, as appropriate in the program of study
  • Work collaboratively to accomplish learning objectives

Approved by the Academic Senate on April 13, 2021.

Program Outcomes

  1. Apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to narrowly defined internet and information technology activities
  2. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to internet and information technology problems that require limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge
  3. Conduct web programming and implement web designs
  4. Function effectively as a member of a technical team
  5. Identify, analyze, and solve narrowly defined internet and information technology problems
  6. Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and nontechnical environments; and identify and use appropriate technical literature
  7. Understand the need for and demonstrate an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development
  8. Demonstrate an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities, including a respect for diversity
  9. Demonstrate a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement
