Computer And Information Technology Occupations

A complete history of computing would include a multitude of diverse devices such as the ancient Chinese abacus, the Jacquard loom (1805) and Charles Babbage’s “analytical engine” (1834). Each year the department participates in the International Collegiate Programming Contest. Sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery, ICPC is a competition among teams of student programmers to see which team can solve the most programming problems in a short amount of time. This web development degree prepares students to design and develop professional looking materials for placement on the web. Equipped with the full range of industry tools and practices, web design degree students go further to partner with mobile device development and create location based services and applications for the mobile web.

With a four-year CS degree, students can find employment as programmers, software engineers or IT professionals. However, to become a software developer, graduates usually must teach themselves quite a bit of programming on their own. A CS education prepares students to choose the correct design patterns, algorithms and data structures for programs, but most students graduate knowing only one or two programming languages, usually C++, Python or Java. For most corporate programming jobs, C++ alone may suffice, but a professional software developer should know several other languages, including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, MySQL, PHP, Python and Java.

21st Century audiences expect 21st Century content. Students earning UAT’s digital video degree, a film production degree. Apply new technological solutions in digital filmmaking to the age-old challenge of storytelling to achieve true contemporary relevance in digital video production. This film production degree emphasizes film production methods, preparing tomorrow’s content creators to deliver the best of today’s and tomorrow’s technology.

At MIT, researchers begin experimenting with direct keyboard input to computers, a precursor to today´s normal mode of operation. Typically, computer users of the time fed their programs into a computer using punched cards or paper tape. Doug Ross wrote a memo advocating direct access in February. Ross contended that a Flexowriter – an electrically-controlled typewriter – connected to an MIT computer could function as a keyboard input device due to its low cost and flexibility. An experiment conducted five months later on the MIT Whirlwind computer confirmed how useful and convenient a keyboard input device could be.

The following videos are from the Undergraduate Senior Capstone Class from the 2014- 2015 school year. This class covers a full academic calendar year and is hosted by Dr. Charles Lesko of the College of Engineering and Technology at East Carolina University. The Capstone class contains an open-ended design project that begins in the fall with the development of the project proposal, and continues into spring with the execution and completion of the proposed project. Each project is handled by a single team throughout the year, and results in a final presentation at the end of the course. These videos are the recorded final presentation for the Capstone class.
