The Computer Engineering Technology program and Computer Support Technician program will prepare you for higher education in computer science and engineering, as well as making you “job ready” for entry level employment in networking, information, and computer technology-related jobs in the public and private sectors. Your studies will include advanced C++ coding and software application development, integrated circuit development, hardware development, and embedded systems (robotics) programming and design. You will become qualified to design, build, and maintain network infrastructures.

In the current hiring environment for workers in technology fields, it is critically important that the technology courses that you take and certificates that you earn at a community college transfer to your next degree or demonstrate your qualifications in an employable technology skill. The CET and CST program at Klamath Community College has an academic agreement with Oregon Institute of Technology’s Computer Engineering Technology program that will transfer your classes at KCC toward a Bachelor of Science degree at OIT. In addition, you will undergo Cisco Networking Academy training in KCC’s new state of the art networking lab and have opportunities to earn Cisco’s CCNA Routing and Switching certifications, and the A+ CompTIA certificate. At the completion of your studies, you will complete one term of a cooperative internship with a local employer that utilizes an information system for an “on-the-job” training experience to get your technology career started.

For more information on the CET and CST programs or for a tour of our new Cisco Academy Networking lab facilities you may contact Pete Brandsness at brandsness@klamathcc.edu or call 541 880-2279.
