A project-based approach will be used. Topics include:formulas and functions, charts, Web queries, what-if analysis, data tables, worksheet as a database, working with multiple worksheets and workbooks, solver, goal seeking, macros and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), formula auditing, data validation, importing data, pivot charts, and pivot tables.

This is a study of the systematic analysis and design of computer software using case tools, data flow analysis, culminating in a complete system design. 3 credits (Spring) CSCI 241 VISUAL BASIC Prerequisite: CSCI 155 or equivalent This course is an Intro to computer programming and problem solving techniques. Stresses modularity and structured techniques. Programming structures including looping, sequence, and decision making. Students will be exposed to the Visual BASIC programming language with an overview of the language and specific implementation examples. 

This course focuses on the integration of the various applications using the case project method. Students will learn to use, MS Office, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and Outlook.  Students will learn to use the integrated tools in modern applications programs to save time and increase the accuracy and integrity of the overall information of reports. 

As a student in this course, you will learn the most important topics of Microsoft Office Access 2016. No prior computer experience is assumed. First, you will learn the basics of file management and the most important elements of the new Microsoft Office 2016 interface. Next, you will learn to create and build databases and define table relationships. Once you have mastered these topics, you will learn to maintain and query databases, and create and use forms and reports.

An introductory course examining the physical properties of the atmosphere. radiation, heating and cooling, precipitation, clouds, weather disturbances, climate controls, map reading and planetary circulation. Consists of 3 hours lecture and 2 hours lab per week.  Four credits.

An algebra based survey course presenting the fundamental laws and phenomena that underlie nature.  Classical and modern physics concepts covered include:  mechanics, motion, gravitation, heat, energy, thermodynamics,


Students in this course will master a core of basic concepts through which most of chemistry can be understood. CHMY 141 is the first in a two-semester general chemistry sequence.  The chemical knowledge and skills that you gain in these courses will prepare you for a variety of advanced courses in many subjects.  The problem-solving and learning skill that you will develop in these and similar courses are likely to help you throughout your career. This class will consist of three hours of lecture and two hours of lab per week. The Laboratory course has a separate number; CHMY 142.


This course uses Visual Basic 2017, an object-oriented language, to teach programming concepts. This course is designed as a beginning programming course. However, it assumes students are familiar with basic Windows skills and file management.


This course provides the beginning programmer with a guide to developing applications using the Java programming language. Java is popular among professional programmers because it can be used to build visually interesting graphical user interface (GUI) and Web-based applications. Java also provides an excellent environment for the beginning programmer—a student can quickly build useful programs while learning the basics of structured and object-oriented programming techniques.


This is an Introductory course to Networking.

Students apply math skills to business situations arising during normal business activities. Concepts and procedures are discussed including payroll computations, checking and savings accounts, simple and compound interest loans, purchasing and sales procedures, budgeting, and record keeping.
