Business and Computer Technology
The mission of the Pellissippi State's Business and Computer Technology (BCT) Department is to meet the educational needs of present and future business, computer, hospitality, and paralegal professionals.
The BCT Department is committed to giving students both the classroom education and the hands-on experience they need to compete and excel in a wide variety of fields. And the department does an exceptional job of fulfilling that commitment: it enjoys an excellent reputation in the Knoxville area and has a long-term job placement rate of more than 90 percent.
Business and Computer Technology is made up of 30 faculty members, all of whom have their fingers on the pulse of ever-changing business and computer practices. Students benefit from constantly updated software and more than 50 computer labs across the College’s five campuses.
Whether you’re drawn to the applied field of computer technology or you prefer to share ideas at a corporate roundtable, Business and Computer Technology has developed a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree to suit your needs. Want to enter the workforce more quickly? The department has a growing list of one-year certificate programs. In fact, our offerings are continually modified to reflect the changes in the skills and knowledge graduates need to be successful in business and industry.
Already juggling a job or family? Accelerated “cohorts” have been created so that students can maintain their daytime responsibilities while earning an associate’s degree. A cohort allows students to enter and finish a course sequence together, with the benefit of the same supportive community.
Future small-business owners, marketing coordinators, computer systems developers, branch managers, medical transcriptionists, caterers, hotel managers, human resources assistants—all will benefit from a first-rate faculty and education at Pellissippi State.
