This certificate program provides students with a well-rounded microcomputer applications background that allows them to integrate technological tools into the workplace. The focus is on hands-on experience with some theoretical foundations. The program is not meant to produce programmers/analysts as does the associate degree in computer technology, yet may inspire student to continue toward that degree.
Students must satisfy the prerequisites, if any, of all courses in the program by either (a) completing the prerequisite course, or (b) by demonstrating to a computer technology faculty member that they have otherwise met the prerequisite. A minimum of 15 credit hours must be completed at Kent State University. Transfer credits may be used only if the letter grades appear on transcript.
