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.

Note: Students should observe the "See course description" footnotes that appear throughout the following program. Many courses in this program have prerequisites or special notes or instructions of importance to students considering enrollment. BUSN 1151-Keyboarding is a recommended prerequisite to the CET program and CIST classes.

Since the transferability of courses will vary depending on the specific four-year institution, it is strongly recommended that if students are intending to transfer to a four-year institution, they must consult with the transfer institution and with their respective KCKCC advisor before enrolling in order to determine the transferability of their courses. It is the student's responsibility to follow the transfer requirements established by his/her transfer institution.
