Computer Technology

The computer technology option is designed to provide students with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in computer and information technologies. Courses included in this option provide experiences in computer components, networking systems, networking installation and troubleshooting, and in operating systems software packages. Graduates of this option typically work as process/product analysts, application analysts, networkers, programmers, or managers of computer operations. Upon the completion of the computer technology option, students will be able to:

  1. Be familiar with hardware/software functions and troubleshooting.
  2. Be familiar with network administration, the analysis and evaluation of system outputs.
  3. Demonstrate safe and appropriate use of computer technology employed in the work environment.
  4. Understand how transformers are constructed and how they operate
  5. Understand the basic structure and characteristics of inductors and capacitors.
  6. Apply knowledge of electrical circuits and concepts through testing, troubleshooting, experimentation and problem solving.
  7. Analyze series, parallel and series-parallel RC circuits.
  8. Analyze series, parallel and series-parallel RL circuits.
  9. Analyze series, parallel and series-parallel RCL circuits.
  10. Determine the bandwidth of resonant circuits.
