Information Technology at MCC


My name is Matthew Dehart and and I am a technician for Montgomery County Schools. The IT program is not what I expected When I first started, I thought it would be really difficult But its actually a really fun program You get to do a lot of hands on stuff Taking stuff apart and working on software You can collaborate a lot with your classmates and work as a team to get stuff done The Information Technology program at MCC is very diverse Instead of focusing on one specific section of information technology They kinda do several different aspects of information technology So that way I think it prepares us for multiple paths we could take in the career field What I like most about the information technology program here at MCC is the size of the classes It’s small enough that everybody can get individual attention as they need My name is PJ Bailey and I went to MCC through the college and career promise program I graduated with a certificate in Information Technology from the college 2 weeks before I graduated from high school. As a high school student, I found it relatively easy to take, and fun The classes being more hands on then most of the other classes I’ve been in were a major reason but also the teachers made it fun The college experience at MCC was really nice I enjoyed it, the staff and the teachers are really nice everybody’s helpful, if you ever needed anything You could either call or send somebody an email and it wouldn’t take long for a response and they would help you out the best they could The instructors made sure to get us information on industry wide certifications If a person were to pursue those certifications outside of the setting here at MCC They’re very expensive At MCC the cost of those exams are included and some of the bigger ones such as A+ are discounted for the college students and they’re about half price At the end of my high school career I had multiple certifications as well as my certificate from MCC’s information technology course It gave me a solid foundation for when I started taking classes at a 4-year My job now is web design and IT tech Coming into MCC I had a basic knowledge of web design But my current position of IT Tech I had no knowledge of hardware The IT program at MCC really focused on teaching me everything I needed to know to perform this job I currently work for Belk corporate office in Charlotte I am an IT operations analyst for them I support all employees for Belk Whenever I started my job search I was able to search not one specific information technology career but several different ones which opened up the possibilities for me to start a career outside MCC The best thing about taking the information technology program at mcc was definitely knowing that you were going to do something new every day You didn’t know what you were going to get to do but you knew it would be something different and it would be something that you enjoyed This isn’t a degree mill When you come here the instructors actually take the time to get to know you and they actually take a personal interest in making sure you suceed they’re not just here to get a paycheck and feed people thru the system They actually care whether or not you succeed and they make sure that you have a successful career after MCC.
