Survey of Computer Technology


The course is designed for students who are interested in information technology but have limited technical knowledge of computing systems. Students learn foundational concepts related to computer hardware and software, networking, databases, programming, information systems, and data security. The course includes a number of hands-on labs to reinforce the concepts students are learning. It covers all objectives necessary to pass the CompTIA IT Fundamentals (FC0-U61) exam.


Technology surrounds us. You likely have some piece of technology with you everywhere you go. If you have a limited understanding and want to learn more about the technology we use almost every day, this course is for you. We will look at basic concepts that are common throughout all areas of life, including how computers and networks function, databases, programming and security.
