New Online and Evening Opportunities!
Computer Information Science Program
You can now take CIS courses online and in the evening! Starting Fall 2012, the CIS A.S. program will be offered in a format more convenient for working adults. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please contact Alicia McNett, the Computer & Information Science Department Chairperson, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (607)962-9300.
Spring 2013 Online Offerings
The computing programs are supported by dedicated, highly competent and skilled faculty who provide impressive coverage of disparate corners of the computing landscape. Faculty remain committed to their own professional development, and frequently seek opportunities to expand their knowledge in both their discipline and pedagogy.
Research includes BITS, a High Performance Computing collaboration between CCC, SUNY Geneseo, and SUNY IT. He also developed the LAIR, a high performance computing cluster utilized by CCC students.

Students in computing programs work in several of the computing labs available to them. Some of our specialized labs include:
the LAIR: Location for Abstract and Innovative Resources. This is the name of the High-Performance Computing Lab put together for the HPC and UNIX courses at CCC. Located down at the Business Development Center, we sport an Athlon cluster and a myriad of other machines to provide an adequate infrastructure and computing environment for exploration, learning, and collaboration.
Networking Labs: We have two dedicated networking labs hosting a variety of software and networking equipment specialized for the courses located in these labs.
Mac Lab: Purchased in 2011, our iMac lab is utilized for a variety of graphic design, digital art, and web development and design courses.
Lab46: Lab46, our virtual lab environment, is the Computer & Information Science Department’s Student Development Linux Server for computer-related coursework, projects, and exploration.
CCC has a variety of industry-standard resources available to students.
The Computer & Information Science department participates in Microsoft DreamSpark (formerly MSDN Academic Alliance) in order to put professional developer tools in the hands of students at no additional charge to the student.
The Computer & Information Science department proudly offers the CISCO Networking Academy program. “Networking Academy delivers a comprehensive, 21st century learning experience to help students develop the foundational ICT skills needed to design, build, and manage networks, along with career skills such as problem solving, collaboration, and critical thinking. Students complete hands-on learning activities and network simulations to develop practical skills that will help them fill a growing need for networking professionals around the world.” (cisco.com)
