The new or revised courses listed below have been approved through the curricular process
and will appear in the 2015 - 2016 College Catalog. For more information, please contact the appropriate Academic Department Chairperson.
CPT 211 - Android App Design for Mobile Devices (New)
An introduction to the design and implementation of mobile applications using the Android computing platform. Students will utilize standard software development techniques, including the use of an integrated development environment and software development kits, to build mobile applications. The applications will include capture and processing of data from the integrated sensors found in a typical mobile device. Three class hours 3 Credits.
Prerequisite(s): CSC 101 or CPT 101 or CIS 101
CPT 212 - Wireless and Remote Sensor Technology (New)
This course introduces the student to concepts employed in the wireless acquisition of data from remote sensors found on airborne devices such as aircraft, spacecrafts, and satellites as well as from sensors integrated into common commercially available medical devices, tablets and smartphones. The use of remote sensors involves the acquisition of information on an object, phenomenon or an environment with minimum physical contact. In practice this is achieved by acquiring information from sensors that are responsive to environmental elements, which may be atmospheric (air pressure, vibration, humidity) or electromagnetic radiation that may be in the form of invisible (heat) or visible radiation. Students will explore various applications of sensors in a laboratory setting, apply their knowledge of digital electronics, networking and programming and gain experience integrating commercially available electro-optical, magnetic and environmental sensors into a practical wireless application. Two class hours, two lab hours. 3 Credits.
Prerequisite(s): MTH 165, ENR 157, CSC 202 all with a grade of C or better.
