Oracle Administration - Overview

Oracle  Forward

The Computer Technology Integration (CTI) degree combined with special skills attained through the D25500-D2 diploma prepares graduates for employment with organizations that use database management system software to process, manage and communicate information.  Additionally, the curriculum provides the student with a foundation to begin professional certification with ORACLE database programs.

Course work includes terminology and design, database administration, backup and recovery, performance and tuning, database programming and tools, and related topics. Studies will provide an opportunity for students to implement, support and manage industry standard database systems.

Graduates should qualify for a wide variety of database and computer related entry-level positions that provide opportunities for advancement with increasing experience and ongoing training.

Database administrators are expected to be among the fastest growing occupations through 2014. Employment of these computer specialists is expected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations as organizations continue to adopt and integrate increasingly sophisticated technologies.

Job increases will be driven by rapid growth in computer systems design and related services, which is projected to be one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. economy. Job growth will not be as rapid as the previous decade, however, as the information technology sector begins to mature and as routine work is increasingly outsourced overseas. In addition to growth, many job openings will arise annually from the need to replace workers who move into managerial positions, other occupations or who leave the labor force.
