The Department of Business Technologies has several programs of study. The Technical programs are Accounting Technology, Computer Information Systems, Computer Networking and Troubleshooting Technology, Management Development, Office Technology Administration, and Real Estate. Students can graduate with either an Associate of Applied Science degree or a Certificate of Completion. Business Technologies also offers two fully transferable academic degrees: Associate of Arts in Business or Associate of Science in Computer Information Systems. Classes are taught in the traditional face-to-face format, however, several courses are offered in an online format.

Lamar Institute of Technology also requires students to register for the College Success Skills Course (DORI 0200) in their first semester. The course is designed to provide students with a thorough orientation to the campus, postsecondary education, and the classroom skills necessary for success. Students that transfer fifteen semester credit hours (15 SCH) from an accredited postsecondary institution with a GPA of 2.0 may be exempt from the College Success Skills Course
