NOTE: Dunwoody College isn’t accepting new students into the Computer Systems Analysis program for the 2020-21 academic year. Going forward, the program's name has been changed to Computer Science

At Dunwoody College of Technology, the Computer Systems Analysis bachelor's completion program is a two-year evening program designed for students who have an existing two-year degree or certificate in networking, programming, or databases. The program prepares students to analyze procedures, methods, and uses of computer systems.

Graduates develop the critical thinking and analytical skills to help companies build and maintain computer systems, design and implement network systems, and make changes to hardware/software configurations to improve business operations. They also learn how to study an organization's current computer systems and procedures and make recommendations to management to help the organization operate more efficiently and effectively.

Coursework includes such topics as IT security, management information systems, operations management, project management, and computer architecture. Arts & Sciences courses enhance and support the technical coursework.
