Technology is revolutionizing almost every aspect of our lives. Companies all
over the world need a talented work force with the skills to drive their businesses
into the 21st century and beyond.
The Computer Science one-credit courses were instituted to help students achieve
academic success and insure that they have the necessary skills to compete successfully
in the workplace. The classes will enable students to attain a level of proficiency
in basic and advanced computer applications and provide the tools and instruction
to improve their skills. Classes can be used to fulfill elective requirements,
help students pass the required computer literacy exam and/or help students
meet credit requirements for financial aid with the benefit of useful instruction.
In a world where technical skills are a key component in virtually every area
of expertise, students who take these classes will add marketable skills to
strengthen their resumes. While there are numerous benefits to students in virtually
every major subject, some classes were instituted to inspire the students’
creativity such as enhancing digital photos, creating a wireless home networking
system, and developing sounds and animation on the web.
