Computer programmers work closely with systems analysts to define problems, analyze input data and output report requirements and prepare a program of instructions that a computer can follow to solve a problem. The highly abstract nature of systems and programming requires strong logical and creative abilities.
This course focuses on the concepts and operation of the main components of word processor, electronic spreadsheet, database management and presentation software programs. Students will gain fundamental knowledge of a major software suite and learn skills that have practical applications in real world situations. Lab fee required.
