Technology is a crucial part of modern society, and computers lie at the heart of it all. Few fields are growing and changing as fast as computers and information technology. That means there’s a strong need for professionals with the specialized and up-to-date skills to develop, manage, upgrade, and secure computer-based systems and applications. A computer technologist designs and implements software and hardware that allows all these things to be possible.
The Bachelor of Computer Technology degree program at Meru University is an interdisciplinary program that exposes students to more faculty members, more cutting edge technology, and more ideas. While students cross-train they also have the opportunity to work with students from both departments, so they graduate with an extended personal network as well.
This degree program provides a broad-based background in computer technology and includes courses in general applications programming, computer software, systems, mathematics, and computer networks.
