Minor in Computer Electronics Technology
The minor in computer electronics prepares students for technical level work in computer related areas, with typical job responsibilities include maintaining, installing and administering computer systems and networks.
Students have the opportunity to expand their interest in electronics, computers systems, and networking. Learn how to build, test, and troubleshoot computer electronic systems and networks. Gain a background in computer electronics and networking through structured lectures and laboratory activities.
The minor consists of six classes dealing with Electricity and Electronics, Digital Electronics, Microprocessor Control Systems, PC Troubleshooting & Construction, LAN's & PC Communications, and either Microcomputer & Network Security or Programmable Logic Controllers.
Professional certifications related to computer systems and networking, during or after completion of the minor, may be attempted. Peer interaction is encouraged through interest groups such as ESCA (Eastern Student Computer Association). This student-led group holds regular meetings during the semester discussing current developments in networking, PC hardware and software.
