Enroll in CIT at BCTC!

Every field needs employees with computer knowledge. Computer-related jobs are among the fastest growing in Kentucky and nationwide.

The Computer & Information Technologies program at BCTC combines lecture and hands-on activities as students learn the theory of computing and put that theory into practice.

The CIT Computer Club and Bluegrass Women in Technology are two student groups that meet outside of the classroom, and BCTC faculty, staff, and students are active in outreach activities that spread awareness and enjoyment of technology year-round.

Whether you have computer experience or are looking to refresh your computer skills, you need to be in CIT at BCTC.
