Whether it is the one running various systems in your car, the phone in your pocket, or the chip inside a pacemaker, the world today runs on computers. We at Klamath Community College seek to increase the level of our students computer competency to give them the competitive edge in today's workplaces.
Why study computer applications?
Computer applications classes cover and introduction of computers and related skills. These can form a great base for future technological learning. Most industries use computers in some form or fashion. Having even a basic knowledge in computer science will help you prepare for entry into the workforce.
Do I need to own my own computer?
While having your own computer would be extremely helpful, Klamath Community College offers several student use computers in all of our buildings. Owning a personal computer would allow you to complete assignments on your own time, outside of class or school hours. Taking online classes would be difficult with out a personal computer.
Do you have to be good at math to study computer applications?
While having a firm grasp of mathematical concepts will be helpful when taking any computer related class, it is not required. CAS classes are considered general education so they are a good fit for entry-level or non-traditional students. Most of the skills you will need to complete the classes will be taught during the course of the class.
