Rasmussen College Realigns The School of Technology and Design to Better Accommodate Students

The School of Technology and Design separates to individual focus areas giving students a more industry focused career path

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (October 11, 2012) – Rasmussen College today announced the separation of the School of Technology and Design to best meet the educational needs of students. The School’s previous structure combined students pursuing a more technical path, with those individuals interested in multimedia and digital design technologies. While both pathways deliver a comprehensive and career-focused curriculum that builds a foundation for future success, each attracts a unique student and demands a different focus on content and academic delivery. This new split will meet both objectives.

“We are always looking for ways to better support the needs of our students and this new alignment will allow for more targeted coursework and academic offerings,” said Kristi Waite, Rasmussen College President. “Our students will be able to closely work with industry-leading faculty who are focused in their specific discipline – this is just another strategic adjustment that Rasmussen College is making to better ensure our students are successful.”

According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the demand for technology professionals is projected to grow up to 28 percent by 2020. The new School of Technology offers Bachelor’s and Associate’s degree, Diploma and Certificate programs in fields such as Computer Science, Software Application Development, Cyber Security, Information Technology Management, Information Systems Management, and Game and Simulation Programming. The school realignment allows Rasmussen College to support this demand by expanding its complete portfolio of existing technology programs in the state of Illinois and fully online.

The School of Design offers Bachelor’s and Associate’s degree and Diploma programs in fields such as Digital Design and Animation and Multimedia Technologies.

“Our goal is to put educated and prepared students into the workforce to make sure they are able to excel amongst their peers in this competitive job market, said Waite. “It’s not only important that we support the needs of our community, but the demands of our business community as well, and this can be accomplished through more targeted programs.”
