Computer Information Technology


Computers have become essential to all phases of modern life, including traditional areas of business and science, as well as applications in entertainment and personal life. The most crucial element of any computer system is the person operating it. The computer field includes an ever-growing array of occupations. Three important jobs are programmers, microcomputer support specialists, and operators.

Computer programmers convert project specifications from end users and statements of problems and procedures to detailed artifacts for coding into computer languages. They develop and write computer programs to store, locate, and retrieve specific documents, data, and information.

Computer support specialists provide technical assistance and training to computer systems users. They investigate and resolve computer software and hardware problems of users. They answer clients’ inquiries in person, via e-mail or telephone concerning the use of computer hardware and software, including printing, word processing, programming languages, electronic mail, and operating systems.

Microcomputer technicians oversee the installation and maintenance of computer hardware and software.  Microcomputer technicians must diagnose and correct problems with microcomputer hardware and software.
