Why study Information Systems at CCC

The Information Systems department at Clovis Community College is committed to building a foundation for you in computer technology, web development/programming, networking, and cybersecurity. You will receive hands-on experiences, examples, or computer simulations that help you better understand real-life technology scenarios. Our instructors have spent many years in the industry learning and developing their technology trades. They are ready to pass their knowledge onto you. We are not just theories, but hands-on skills that will allow you to have an advantage in national certifications.

Our Philosophy

Clovis Community College's Information Systems department philosophy is based around the idea of 'I do, We do, You do. ' The instructor shows you how to use the computer technology, then you do the technology lesson/simulation with your instructor, and then you take what you have learned to work independently on the computer concept.
