The Industrial Computer Fundamentals Certificate Program emphasizes the basic skills needed to begin a career in the computer engineering technology field. Designed for high school graduates or those entering industry for the first time, the program covers several essential areas. These areas include: introduction to engineering technology; computer systems applications such as word processing and spreadsheets; hardware/software essentials; introduction to electric circuits; digital circuits; and introduction to programming.

Each student should be assured that he or she has met the prerequisites before attempting to register for a course.  The program is designed as a two-semester sequence.

Graduates of this program may find employment as entry-level technicians with companies that design, manufacture, test, utilize, or maintain computer systems or computer peripherals. Graduates may work in areas such as software trouble-shooting, computer network equipment testing and maintenance, and computer hardware installation and maintenance. Four of the courses in the certificate program (CENT 1310  , CENT 1320  , EETC 1331  , and CITC 1320  ) transfer to the Computer Engineering Technology associate degree program.
