Computer Programs Overview

With campuses in Willmar and Hutchinson, Minnesota, Ridgewater excels in both onsite and online learning. Along with their years of experience working in the IT field and the classroom, Ridgewater’s IT faculty are innovating new ways of delivering distance education, through the use of virtualization. With the use of online learning technologies and flexible course delivery methods, students in Ridgewater’s IT programs are able to conveniently complete course work.

Ridgewater IT students have the unique opportunity to work in and manage a Help Desk that performs repairs and upgrades, and trouleshoots actual laptops and desktops. This gives students hands-on experience in troubleshooting and customer service in a real working environment.
