List of Courses

CMT 101 Introduction to Computers and Applications (4 credits)

This course is an introduction to basic concepts underlying the computer and its applications in technology and science fields. The focus of the course is on studying the computer for acquiring and presenting information, using spreadsheets to solve problems, collecting and storing data, and word processing. Topics include: hardware and software computer concepts, an introduction to internet in acquiring and sharing information (WWW, User list, and Personal Message Centers), introduction to spread sheet applications in solving problems and charting, use of text editors to write documents (Word Processing), an introduction to technical presentations, and use of application programs for organizing data, and drawing charts and schematics. Students who have completed CIS 100 or (CMT 110 - no longer offered) may not take this course for credit. Prerequisite: MAT 079; prerequisite or co-requisite: MAT 087/088 or permission of instructor.

CMT 171 Digital Electronics (4 credits)

An introduction to digital (computer) integrated circuits, emphasizing the concepts that are basic to any digital system: number systems, small-scale and mid-scale gates, programmable logic devices, sequential logic, combinational networks, Boolean algebra, truth tables, Karnaugh maps, state machine design, timing diagrams, and digital arithmetic. Three class hours and a three-hour lab. Co-requisite: MAT 114 or equivalent.

CMT 190 Introduction to Microprocessors (4 credits)

This course is an introduction to basic principles of microprocessor architecture and assembly language instructions. The content of the course is divided into three sections: microprocessor architecture, mnemonics, and interfacing I/Os. The course is designed around the Z80 microprocessor and its mnemonics. Topics included in the course are: overview of computers and microcomputers, Z80 microprocessor architecture, bus architecture, memory (R/W Memory, ROM, and EPROM), memory maps, I/Os, interfacing devices and introduction to the Z80 instruction set. The third section, interfacing I/Os, introduces various I/O techniques such as parallel I/O, serial I/O, and interrupts. Two class lectures and one hour for assembly language instructions. Prerequisite: CSC 111, CMT 171, or equivalent.
