Computer technology is an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) option. AAS degrees are traditionally technically focused with some general education requirements. If your interest is in technicallyoriented tasks such as designing and implementing computer networks and telecommunication systems, solving manufacturing process and production problems, programming computer numerical control (CNC) machines for automated machine operations, designing computer animation and graphics, or designing multimedia projects, then one of the computer technology options might be for you. All of these options transition smoothly into bachelor degree options upon completion.
The Microcomputer systems option is designed to prepare students with background and skills to design, implement, and support networked systems in both standard and enterprise settings. It builds a solid foundation in the hardware and architecture of telecommunications networks and systems; operating systems and applications; systems design and analysis; networking theory and solutions; types of networks, including fiber optics and wireless; network management and control; network and flow optimization; network security; configuring, and troubleshooting.
