Computers and Networking I

The Computers and Networking 1 course provides Electronics Electro-Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering Technology students with the fundamental skills to install and maintain small computer networks. The course also looks at integrating small computer devices into a network through the Raspberry Pi computer. The course starts with the PC and uses hands-on labs to master installation, upgrading, maintenance and basic troubleshooting of workstations. We then look at small computing/mobile devices through an investigation of the Raspberry Pi. This includes some coding to connect the SC system to the environment. The course then continues with networking the workstations, design of small local area networks, installation and maintenance of a small network. The student will also look at wireless technology and specific applications in Industrial, Commercial and Medical environments.
