Technology is a crucial part of modern society, and computers lie at the heart of it all. Important things like business, banking and communication, as well as entertainment, playing games, downloading music and how we interact socially all revolve around computers. A computer technologist designs and implements software and hardware that allows all these things to be possible.
Because of how important computers are to life and industry, a BSCT degree is very marketable and would have many possible applications.
Possible sectors for applications of the BSCT degree include:
- Any large organization such as banks, financials institutions, retail chains, universities
- Local, state and federal government
- Computer companies and vendors
- Research laboratories and institutions
Computer Technology at WSU is an interdisciplinary program. Students have the opportunity to take engineering technology and computer science courses. This 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.
Wayne State students pursuing a Bachelor's of Science in Computer Technology may have the option of taking classes at the Advanced Technology Center or at the Schoolcraft Center.
