Computer Systems Technology
A.A.S. Degree - Career Program

This program provides students with comprehensive computer systems knowledge used in the implementation and management of modern networked environments. Classroom work provides students with extensive hands on experience and training using state-of-of-the-art networking components and tools from industry leaders such as CISCO. Additionally, students take courses that build skills in problem solving, analysis, basic electronics, digital logic, programming, computer architecture and operating systems. A focus on practical applications is maintained throughout the curriculum. For example, students utilize real life Robotics applications in a “discovery based learning” lab to develop critical thinking skills. In these courses students gain experience in using electronic test equipment, troubleshooting and debugging techniques, computer peripherals, computer and network fault diagnosis, and utilizing both high and low level programming skills to solve some real-life problems.
