Computer Career Studies is designed to introduce students to careers in computer repair and computer programming. Careers could include jobs like hardware field engineer, technical support analyst, software developer, or systems analyst. In addition, this course will serve as an introduction to the more advanced computer courses offered at the high school and in college.
The first part of the course will focus on how a computer works. Students will disassemble, diagnose, and repair computers. They will learn about basic electronics and will create actual electronic circuits. Finally, students will learn about networks and how computers share information and resources.
