Associate in Business Degree

Curriculum Code: 0253  (Effective Fall 2000 - Summer 2005)

Computer auditors plan and conduct audits of data processing systems and
applications to safeguard assets, ensure accuracy of data, and promote
operational efficiency.  They may interview workers and examine records to
gather data by following an audit plan and using the computer.  They analyze
data gathered to evaluate effectiveness of controls and determine accuracy of
reports and efficiency and security of operations.  They devise, write, and
test computer programs necessary to obtain information needed for audit.  They
devise controls for new or modified computer applications to prevent
inaccurate calculations and data loss, and to ensure discovery of errors.

Students should see the "Course Descriptions" section of this catalog or the
Course Schedule for course prerequisite information.  Basic skills assessment
