Computer Technology & Beyond


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.
