Computer Technology Career Programs Programs

With advances in technology, demand for computer engineering specialists is high. The Department of Computer Technology and Information Systems has designed its curriculum to equip students with hands-on experience as well as the knowledge and background gained from a software-concentrated education. Graduates enter the employment market with strong skills in technology, analytics, communication, and business. The program follows an applied approach and requires weekly laboratory hours, which constitute almost one-third of total credit hours. Internship programs and a semester-long industrial training project further enhance the curriculum.

New superchip to make PCs 100 times faster Researchers have developed a technology that could enable our computers — and all optic communication devices — to run 100 times faster through terahertz microchips. Many people confuse a Computer Science Degree with a Degree in Information Technology. Knowing the difference will help you better choose a career. Welcome to Central Maine Community College, where we help our students apply academic knowledge to real life. Individuals with specialized computer skills are in-demand in our digital world. Computer Technology, or the Network Technology and Computer Forensics program at CMCC can help you get a step ahead of the pack into the future.

The ease with which multiple processor, store and peripheral modules could be built into a system, plus the need to extend the upper capability limits, prompted the development of a dual processor variant of E4. This was built entirely from standard modules except for a small synchronisation board which prevented both processors operating simultaneously in special state, and a very minor modification to one of the processors’ interface to store zero, allowing each processor to address a small dedicated memory area for processor-specific variables such as the current activity. However, the results were somewhat disappointing as E4 naturally spent a significant proportion of its time in special state even though efforts had always made to limit special state routines to 100uS at a time. Even running processor-bound user programs, the performance achieved was only of the order of 150% of that of a single processor, and no dual processor E4 systems were ever sold.

Named in honor of the space shuttle which broke-up on re-entry, the Columbia supercomputer is an important part of NASA’s return to manned spaceflight after the 2003 disaster. Columbia was used in space vehicle analysis, including studying the Columbia disaster, but also in astrophysics, weather and ocean modeling. At its introduction, it was listed as the second fastest supercomputer in the world and this single system increased NASA’s supercomputing capacity 10-fold. The system was kept at NASA Ames Research Center until 2013, when it was removed to make way for two new supercomputers.

Find out how much it costs to attend Nashville State Community College. In addition to affordable tuition, we offer a variety of federal, state and local financial aid programs available to qualified students. A career in technology could mean providing support when an application stops working. Others work on Cloud data storage. Some design smaller and smaller computers and smartphones.
