This program's design is based on: New MCC General Education

Description
This program is designed with the 21st century technician in mind, providing students with the skills necessary to work with state-of-the-art embedded systems that include mobile and remote sensing devices. All of the core courses in the curriculum have practical laboratory components that provide students with hands-on experience utilizing essential diagnostic hardware and software development tools. The curriculum focuses on building critical thinking and problem solving skills with an emphasis on practical applications. Flexible elective options in Math, Science and Computer Systems allow the student to fine tune their skills in the areas of networking, programming, or systems design and integration to suit their particular background and future needs. This added flexibility provides students with the option to continue their education and obtain an AS degree with transfer options in Computer Science or Computer Engineering within an additional semester or two of study.
