I'm currently working on my second Master's Degree from Capella University. While I much preferred/enjoyed the courses in my Education program, the courses in the School of Technology have been challenging and real-world oriented. Much of my dislike/problems with courses in the IT program have been due to a lack of background knowledge/experience in field. However, the other students and faculty have been encouraging and supportive of my learning. I have been able to learn and excel and pass on my learning to the students I teach (at a local technical college).

My only truly negative comment about the School of Technology is that the core courses and the "primary emphasis" is on programming. There is much more to the world of IT than programming and not all IT professionals are or desire to be programmers. The administration needs to realize that not everyone comes into the program with a system developer/administrators background. If the graduate courses are going to continue to require this sort of background, some sort of prerequisite courses need to be developed to bring those without the necessary background up to speed.

I will begin writing my thesis at the beginning of next year. I'm looking forward to it (and to getting it done!).

Savvy post . Just to add my thoughts , if your company are looking for a service to merge two images , my secretary discovered a service here also here
