Computer Technology (CMPT) is an interdisciplinary program which combines courses mainly in Engineering Technology, Computer Science and Management. The program also provides a background in mathematics and science which is sufficient to allow students to go on to graduate school. It is designed as a continuation of an associate's degree program in computer science, computer programming, computer networking, or computer software. This program prepares the student for careers as a computer application programmer, database administrator, computer system manager, computer network manager, software specialist, Management Information Systems (MIS) manager, customer support engineer, computer sales representative or educator and trainer in the field of computer applications.    

Students who wish to enter the program as a transfer student are typically students with an associate’s degree in a program of computer studies, such as computer science, computer technology, computer software or computer networking.     

A maximum of 64 semester hour credits may be transferred into this program, and students need most of the following courses: Calculus I, Science such as biology, botany, chemistry, geology or physics, Communications, Economics / Accounting , Physical Education , Introduction to Programming, Data Structures / Advanced High Level Language Programming, Operating Systems (DOS, Windows, Unix) and Database Concepts with SQL (Access, dBase, Visual Basic).  Students are expected to have some knowledge of C++ or another object oriented language.Students with less than 64 credits or with deficiencies in the above subject areas are considered on a case by case basis.
