The Computer Engineering Technology (CET) Club has started a new year at Lenoir Community College. The club consists of students in the CET Department. The club provides freshman and sophomore students the opportunity to interact with each other and students in other LCC programs in such events as Fall Festival and Spring Joust.
This year’s officers are Christopher Stephens, President; Silvestre Martinez, Vice President; Dominique Mitchell, Treasurer; Cody Moore and Jeremy Simmons, Reporters; David V. Jones and Glenn Thompson serving as the Club’s Advisors.
The CET Program focuses on training students with the skills to install, service, and maintain computers, peripherals, networks, microprocessors and other computer-controlled equipment. This program, headed by Program Chair, David V. Jones, has included training in both hardware and software with emphasis on computer systems concepts to provide the student with a well-rounded view of how computer related equipment works together.
The CET coursework includes digital electronics, circuit analysis, programming of PLC’s (Programmable Logic Controllers), upgrade and repair of personal computers, and programming Boe-Bots (microcontrollers), which uses stamp technology, a very popular technology that we use today in such devices as cell phones, microwaves, automobiles, etc. The students in the CET program study computers and computer related equipment.
Jones said the program helps students get prepared for employment in Electronics, Digital Electronics, Computers, Computer Upgrade/Repair, Computer Networking, Routers and Switches, Industrial Controls, Programmable Logic Controllers, Microprocessors, Microcontrollers, sales, etc.
“Companies moving into Lenoir County need skilled employees in those areas,” he said. “Now is the time to start your career in a field with above average salaries, he said. “I tell students, do not wait until the companies start hiring only to discover you do not have a degree that qualifies you for the position you want.”
