Computers and those professionals that maintain, troubleshoot, program, administer, network, and build them are central to most every industry. The Computer Engineering Technology (CET) program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for computer industry positions that address both computer hardware and software, with special emphasis on electronics. Students are prepared for entry-level positions that may involve the testing, troubleshooting, repairing or installation of a variety of computer and networked systems. Other positions may include assisting engineers in the design and building of computer systems. Graduates of this program are well-prepared to continue their education in Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology programs.
Description: Wayne Community College located in Goldsboro, North Carolina would like to create a virtual classroom environment for the surrounding high schools. These schools would attend classes online for the subjects of Auto Cad and Hydraulics. The solution to the project is to download an open source program from to create an online virtual world that students can access via the internet and a client viewer on their computer that will allow them to access the virtual world.
Conceived by Harvard physics professor Howard Aiken, and designed and built by IBM, the Harvard Mark 1 is a room-sized, relay-based calculator. The machine had a fifty-foot long camshaft running the length of machine that synchronized the machine’s thousands of component parts and used 3,500 relays. The Mark 1 produced mathematical tables but was soon superseded by electronic stored-program computers.
While many early digital computers were based on similar designs, such as the IAS and its copies, others are unique designs, like the CSIRAC. Built in Sydney, Australia by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research for use in its Radio physics Laboratory in Sydney, CSIRAC was designed by British-born Trevor Pearcey, and used unusual 12-hole paper tape. It was transferred to the Department of Physics at the University of Melbourne in 1955 and remained in service until 1964.
