Virtual Information Technology Briefing December 6


MUSCATINE, Iowa – Now more than ever, computers and technology play a key role in our lives. From feeding businesses and industry to being close to families, we depend on computers for almost every aspect of our daily routines. Of course, professionals trained in information technology play a key role in making all of this possible.

Eastern Iowa Community Colleges invites anyone interested in this high-demand field to learn more about college programs and careers in computer science at our Virtual information session on December 6 from 6 p.m., online via Zoom.

To participate in the session, visit and click on the link during the designated day and time.

Eastern Iowa Community Colleges prepares students to enter the field of information technology with hands-on programs in virtual and augmented reality, cybersecurity, networking for systems and security, programming, and web development. Programs can be taken in person, entirely online, or with a mix of both delivery methods, making it easy for students to work towards a certificate, diploma or degree within busy schedules. Topics covered in the briefing will include college programs, careers in the field, steps to enroll and more.

Plus, new students who register this spring will receive their first class, worth up to three credit hours, FREE! Students who have registered with us in the past but have spent time away are also eligible. This means that students can take our introductory course – Fundamentals of Augmented and Virtual Reality for free. It’s a great way to explore both AVR design and programming in an interactive and hands-on environment, and find out if an IT career is right for you. Students must register by December 17th to qualify.

Additionally, since they are considered to be in high demand by the state of Iowa, when students enroll in these programs, their tuition can be paid through the state’s Last Dollar program. All they need to do is file with the FAFSA and the state takes care of the balance over and above the aid to which they are entitled. Even if they don’t receive any federal or state aid, the program will pay the full tuition fees for Iowa residents.
