Computers and those professionals that maintain, troubleshoot, program, administer, network, and build them are central to most every industry. IBM’s brand recognition, along with a massive marketing campaign, ignites the fast growth of the personal computer market with the announcement of its own personal computer (PC). The first IBM PC, formally known as the IBM Model 5150, was based on a 4.77 MHz Intel 8088 microprocessor and used Microsoft´s MS-DOS operating system. The IBM PC revolutionized business computing by becoming the first PC to gain widespread adoption by industry. The IBM PC was widely copied (cloned”) and led to the creation of a vast ecosystem” of software, peripherals, and other commodities for use with the platform.
Technology’s explosive evolution is becoming ever more pervasive in commerce and culture, increasing the need to investigate and analyze digital data and assist in the prevention and prosecution of malicious information, theft and corruption. UAT’s computer forensics degree fully prepares students for this exciting career field in which demand is escalating for graduates with this specialized technology computer forensic degree.
Recognized throughout the industry as a new class of digital filmmaking and video production degrees, the digital filmmaking program immerses students in leading-edge technologies and environments essential in today’s film, television, video production, newsgathering, animation, visual effects, gaming, web and interface design industries. Upon completion of UAT’s film production degree, students possess the capability and insight to succeed in this dynamic medium of digital filmmaking.
Like Neo in The Matrix, computer scientists can see and make sense of code. Computer science students will learn the fundamentals of different programming languages, linear and discrete mathematics, and software design and development. Computer scientists study the machine itself and understand how and why various computer processes operate the way they do.
The 1401 mainframe, the first in the series, replaces earlier vacuum tube technology with smaller, more reliable transistors. Demand called for more than 12,000 of the 1401 computers, and the machine´s success made a strong case for using general-purpose computers rather than specialized systems. By the mid-1960s, nearly half of all computers in the world were IBM 1401s.
