Curriculum Guides

There are few careers today that can match the opportunities available in the fast-growing fields of computer engineering technology.  According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, five of the top 25 jobs are related to computer systems, software and networking.

The LCCC Computer Application Integration Specialist program gives you the skills needed to design and implement software, hardware interfaces and networking of equipment with computers, computing devices and communication systems.

You can earn a one-year technical certificate and an associate's degree from LCCC and continue to the University partnership to earn a bachelor's degree from the University of Akron. This enables you to choose your level of training while earning transferable college credits every step of the way.

Your Career Path is as Easy as 1-2-3.


Your first year of training earns you a one-year technical certificate in Computer Engineering Technology - Computer Application Integration Specialist.


Continue for a second year to earn an associate of applied science degree.


All your credits transfer to The University of Akron bachelor's degree program in Computing Applications specialist at the University Partnership. Plus, you can earn three years of credit at LCCC's low tuition rate and complete your degree with one year of courses (32 credits) at The University of Akron. In fact, you can earn your bachelor of science degree with just 128 hours of coursework, which is far less than most other degrees that typically require 140 hours or more.

It Gets Even Better!

The Computer Application Integration Specialist program allows you to select a specialty in five of the highest demand sectors:

  • Manufacturing 
  • Health Care 
  • Banking and Finance 
  • Digital Forensics 
  • Transportation Logistics

If you earn your associates degree and later choose to specialize in a different sector, you earn an additional specialization by taking just two additional courses!  And the additional courses are offered primarily online, with limited on-campus participation. This enables you easily add specializations to meet new opportunities or a changing job market.

In addition, once you earn your Computer Application Integration Specialist associates degree, you can take just four additional courses to earn an associates degree in Digital Forensics.
