NACT-295
3 Credits
This course provides an opportunity for students to work on technical projects that integrate the skills they have developed in earlier Applied Computer Technology courses. Students will work both independently and in teams to solve "real world" networking and computer support problems in a professional manner.
NACT-160
3 Credits
This course introduces students to the basics of user security on their computers as well as the basics of computer networking. Students will learn the importance of user security and some of the tools and procedures needed to protect and secure their information, computers and networks against attack. Basic concepts and terminology of wired and wireless networking including networking hardware, media, communication technologies and protocols, and network management will be covered. Lab activities will develop skills in installing, configuring, managing, and troubleshooting a basic network.
NACT-255
3 Credits
This course will prepare students to pass the two certification tests necessary to earn CompTIA's A+ Certification. Students will review material from previous courses and complete practice exams and troubleshooting exercises in preparation for the exam. In addition to text book(s), students will be required to purchase two certification exam vouchers for this course. To pass the course, students must pass both certification exams.
NACT-150
3 Credits
This course introduces the fundamental hardware concepts of Windows-based computers. The skills required to install, upgrade and maintain computers are presented. The course provides students with methodologies and hands-on activities related to the configuration, diagnosis, repair, upgrade, and preventive maintenance of computer hardware, input/output devices and data communications. Topics include the basic functions and use of test equipment, logical troubleshooting of internal system conflicts and faulty peripherals, and electrical safety.
NMAD-290
3 Credits
Working in teams, students experience the analysis, design, implementation, testing and deployment of a mobile solution for a real-world client. Important topics from throughout their program of study are applied in this course. Faculty advisors facilitate student teams to demonstrate their skills in the applied project. Student teams make a technical presentation to their faculty advisors and participate in a public showcase of projects.
