Because of how important computers are to life and industry, a BSCT degree is very marketable and would have many possible applications. Ethernet is the most common way of connecting computers on a network with a wired connection. It is a type of local area network (LAN) technology, providing a simple interface for connecting multiple devices. The Video Display Module (VDM) marks the first implementation of a memory-mapped alphanumeric video display for personal computers. Introduced at the Altair Convention in Albuquerque in March 1976, the visual display module enabled the use of personal computers for interactive games.

GPRC graduates with a Diploma in Computer Systems Technology may transfer to year three of the applied degree program at NAIT. Have a theoretical mind? Consider pursuing coding theory, algorithms, data structures, or programming language concepts.
