Computer Technology and Maintenance Curriculum. Final Report.
Manchester Community Coll., CT.
A project was conducted by Manchester Community College and Howell Cheney Vocational Technical School in Connecticut to develop a joint curriculum for a two-year computer technology and maintenance program. During the year the project was conducted, a high technology advisory council was formed, consisting of industry and faculty representatives and State Department of Education personnel. The committee discussed educational needs for the program and developed a curriculum and outlines of courses. The curriculum will be either a 30-hour certificate program or a two-year degree program. The target population will be those who wish to enter a high-technology field with growth potential. Courses were scheduled to be offered in the Fall semester of 1985, with the full program in place within the following one and one-half years. It was estimated that the program could accommodate 25-35 full-time students per year. (This report contains the curriculum outline and course descriptions for the following courses: electrical circuits, electronic devices, logic circuits I and II, minicomputer systems I and II, diagnostic instrumentation, and applied microprocessors.)
