All courses within the Department are designed to meet the needs of the students who take them and provide them with the knowledge, ability, skills, and the critical thinking (deductive reasoning) they will need to enter the modern marketplace.

Students complete an intensive study of hardware/software subjects, and related skills in this program. This degree is designed to prepare students for a variety of new and traditional jobs in the mushrooming field of computer applications. Most courses in this degree are transferable to many colleges.

The CET Department offers a transfer program for students interested in pursuing a baccalaureate degree at a four-year college or university and a vocational program for students wishing to seek immediate employment in the computer field. In addition, a one-year certificate is granted for students wishing to enhance their career opportunities in the computer field.

The Concurrent Enrollment Program provides secondary school students with the opportunity to take advanced computer classes at their high school site.

Students are prepared to meet the 21st Century Learning Outcomes through assignments requiring written and oral communications. Mathematical concepts are reinforced through computer programming assignments in each class. Critical thinking skills are enhanced through lab assignments which require introspective answers to questions. Students are assigned to work in teams to complete programming assignments re-enforcing interpersonal skills needed in the workplace.
