The Information Technology program is career-laddered and competency-based. It provides training in the use and support of business-related computer systems, data communication networks (including local area networks), World Wide Web and its importance to businesses, and the development of business information technology systems programs using procedural and object-oriented programming techniques. The program includes a combination of business, computer, and information technology courses. Campus-based computer and networking projects, faculty-supervised laboratories, and workplace internships provide hands-on experience designed to prepare students for positions in computer support, programming, network hardware set up and configuration, or systems development in a business information technology system. The program focuses on computers, the Internet and the World Wide Web, and information technology as tools to solve business problems.
The program trains students in the management of storage and the use of client-server environments in the accessing, processing, storing, and networking of information on computer-based business systems. Today's modern computing environment is a network of interrelated computer systems with connections via a local area network, wide area network, and the Internet. These computer-systems provide access to a variety of information to facilitate the operation of a business. Kapi'olani Community College's Information Technology program ensures student currency in these areas through courses in information technology
“KCC’s ITS program allowed me to enroll in Hawaii Pacific University's Master of Science in Information Technology program and in August 2006, I graduated from HPU. With my degrees, I am currently employed at Hawaii State’s Department of Health under Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) section as an IT Specialist.
I am grateful to KCC for providing me with a solid education to be competitive and competent in HPU’s MSIS program”

“For a little over a year, I have been working on building up my own company, Midori Designs Online, here in Hawaii. My work involves website development and working with the back-end of the sites in different programming languages and with some databases. These are all skills that I received in the Information Technology program at Kapi'olani Community College and I wouldn't be where I am right now, successfully having my own business, if it weren't for having gone through the program. Anyone who is planning on starting their own business in any computer area should strongly consider going to KCC. The programs there are designed so that you can start working right away and the teachers are experienced professionals who can help with advice and encouragement.”
