Computers continue to expand in all aspects of our personal activities in business, manufacturing, education and health care. This program provides balanced coverage of technology fundamentals, computer hardware and computer software. Emphasis is placed on operating principles of hardware and software, networking models, operating systems, internetworking components, industry standards and hands-on laboratory activities for developing practical problem-solving skills.
