Computer Engineering Technology

Computers and those professionals that maintain, troubleshoot, program, administer, network, and build them are central to most every industry. A portion of the Computer Technology curriculum incorporates the Carnegie Mellon University’s LEGO robotics engineering program where students design and program robots to complete tasks. Students will prepare for global certifications in areas of CompTIA A+ Certification and CompTIA Strata Fundamentals of IT at course completion. The Journal of Science & Know-how Law (JOSTL) publishes the best practical scholarship from specialists within the areas of biotechnology, computer systems and communications, intellectual property, know-how transfer and enterprise regulation for know-how-based companies.

Information technology professionals spend time each day communicating orally and in writing with their supervisors, colleagues and clients. As problem-solvers and entrepreneurs in industry, you need to communicate quickly, clearly, and effectively. This course will teach you how to be a professional and efficient communicator at work. You will write effective business correspondence and instructions and deliver a formal oral presentation to your set. The first term establishes the principles and basic patterns on which you will build more advanced applications in the second term.

Because of the nature of the profession, computer technology is one of the most significant testing grounds for alternative education experiments. In the tech industry, a degree is often considered less important than experience and the plain ability to do the job, so tech companies tend to have much less stringent education requirements than other industries.
