Abstract

With a projected 2.26 million additional jobs to fill in various computer fields by the year 2010, there are and will continue to be ample job opportunities in the computer industry. However, the computer field is far too broad for one individual to be an expert in the entire field. Therefore, it may be more useful for students to have the opportunity to concentrate their studies in a specific interest area within a broader information technology degree. This chapter discusses the creation of a database track within an Information Technology (IT) or Computer Information Systems (CIS) degree program so that undergraduate students can choose to focus on this specialty area in their junior and senior years.
