I attended ITT Technical Institute for two years in Canton MI, where I received my Associate of Applied Science (Computer Network Systems). Then I took several months off before deciding to return to college. At the time ITT did not have enough people for their new Bachelors program, (Information Systems Cybersecurity) So I decided to go to Baker College of Allen Park MI. They are a non-profit college accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, which is a regional accreditation. They took nearly all of my ITT Tech credits! With the exception of:
"TB-133 Strategies for the Technical Professional"
"Structured Cabling" (This class was a complete waste of money)
"Portfolio Development" (Made up course by ITT)
Currently, I'm back at ITT Tech, Dearborn MI, in their new (ISC) bachelor program that I waited forever for! After I'm finished I plan on carrying those credits back over to Baker College, and finish the Bachelor of Information Technology and Security (BITS) program that I started there, giving me dual bachelor degrees.
I will admit that ITT Tech does give out some degrees to undeserving individuals, lessening the value of your AS degree each time. However, the Bachelor program is no joke, the instructors are required to have a Masters degree, and believe me they will fail you if you don't perform. We have lost nearly half our class already, they just couldn't handle the work load. I study the curriculum that I'm most interested in, after all, college is supposed to be a somewhat enjoyable experience.
Employers will usually ask a lot of technical questions during a job interview, and they can usually weed out the idiots within the first few questions. My advice is to get certs and experience to back up your degree, some employers only look for experience.
