Information Technology: Application Software Development B.Tech.

Computer with code

Making business work.

Software developers know how to make it work for the bottom line. If that’s where your passion lies, the SUNY Morrisville Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) degree in information technology: application software development will give you the skills you need to enter the profession.

You’ll write computer programs using all current software languages, and also learn database development and design, networking and communication techniques, and much more.

For coursework, Morrisville’s Computer Information Technology (CIT) Department provides you with Microsoft platform, servers and developer tools software such as Visual Studio, Microsoft Project, Microsoft Visio and versions of Windows server through its membership in the Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching. You not only get to use this software during your studies, but you can keep it upon completion of the program.

The CIT Department also maintains an alliance with VMware, which provides you with the software needed to run virtual operating system environments on your machines.

Our hands-on approach to learning culminates in a semester-long, 12-credit professional internship, where you put in nearly 500 hours of work in an industry setting to gain the professional experience necessary to launch your career. There is also the potential of landing a full-time position with the organization sponsoring your internship, as has been the case for many of our graduates.

After graduation, you can work as a designer and developer of applications, gaming programs, servers and databases, and other related computer software.

You can enhance your college experience through a variety of related clubs. The SUNY Morrisville Competitive Gaming Club creates a community for interested gamers through education, sportsmanship, competitive multiplayer gaming and attendance at gaming-related events. Additionally, the SUNY Morrisville Technology Club brings together students, faculty and staff who are interested in computer systems, computer information, networking computers and using computers for our community.

The college is one of the first to annually host Global Game Jam® (GGJ), the world’s largest on-site game creation event which gives teams of artists, hobbyists, programmers and gamers throughout the world a chance to brainstorm, innovate, collaborate and develop new ideas for game design over the course of 48 hours.
