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). The British Broadcasting Corporation’s Computer Literacy Project hoped to introduce interested adults to the world of computers.” Acorn produces a popular computer, the BBC Microcomputer System, so viewers at home could follow along on their own home computers as they watched the program. The machine was expandable, with ports for cassette storage, serial interface and rudimentary networking. A large amount of software was created for the BBC Micro,” including educational, productivity, and game programs.
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.
As technology continues its speed-of-light evolution in commerce and culture, the theft and corruption of information expands as well. UAT’s Network Security degree prepares students to design networks using diagrams and documentation that secures cyber communication within an organization and throughout the outside world. Students with this cyber security degree develop a comprehensive understanding of how to create, maintain and defend secure networks.
The unit covers professional, legal and career development issues in the Computing and Digital Technology industries and includes a pathway-specific group project. Search our database of online and campus-based computer and technology programs. Includes instruction in computer concepts, information systems, networking, operating systems, computer hardware, the Internet, software applications, help desk concepts and problem solving, and principles of customer service.
With a master degree in technology management, students expand their skills into the business realm, enabling them to manage projects and collaborate with teams, be entrepreneurial and understand legal issues associated with business and technology. If you major in Computer Information Systems, Computer Technology, or Computer Networking, effective Fall 2016 Nashville State will offer only one computer-related Associate of Applied Science degree in Computer Information Technology.
