My Courses

EMT1111: Logic and Problem Solving | Fall 2017

EMT1111: Logic and Problem Solving | Fall 2017

This course introduces the foundations of problem-solving and computer programming as it is applied to computer engineering technology. It provides a basic understanding of programming techniques, logic, and number systems through hands-on laboratory exercises in a modern programming language. Students will learn Python to understand basic programming concepts a. The course encourages students to cooperate with others and use their imagination, creativity, and problem-solving.

CET4773 | Fall 2017

CET4773 | Fall 2017

Technologies, protocols, and techniques used to connect a computer network with other networks through the use of gateways that provide a common method of routing information packets between the networks. Internetworking technology allows computing devices to other internal and external devices, components or systems. Topics include Local Area Networks (LAN) and Wide Area Networks (WAN) implementation, wireless networks implementation, network security, advanced switching and routing configuration, advanced TCP/IP configuration, and network management. In particular, this semester will focus on the content required to obtain the CCENT/CCNA ICND1 certification from CISCO. NOTE: This course was formerly known as Microcomputer Interfacing.

EMT2370 | Fall 2016

EMT2370 | Fall 2016

EMT 2370: Computer Hardware Systems Computer hardware systems, along with several software concepts, are studied to understand the function and relationship of the CPU, memory, and peripheral equipment. Course material is chosen for relevance to industry certification exams such as A+. The peripheral equipment includes monitors, disk drives, scanners, and printers. During laboratory exercises, computer systems, with monitor and operating system, are provided for analysis by students working in teams. However, as an option, each student can build, configure, analyze and troubleshoot his or her own IBM PC (or compatible) computer.

CITY TECH – College Wide Assessment Committee

CITY TECH – College Wide Assessment Committee

Assessment is an essential activity at City Tech, and indeed in all colleges and universities as accountability issues gain in importance. Many faculty members have become deeply engaged in assessment and have come to understand how to use it to strengthen curriculum and improve teaching and learning. The College Wide Assessment Committee at CITY TECH provides leadership and assistance in developing and overseeing a program of evaluation and feedback to enhance institutional effectiveness. The main goal is to design and help to fully implement the an structure, long envisioned, to guide assessment work and for faculty members to assume a greater role in the leadership of this initiative. The committee also: – develops and recommends college-wide policies; – assists in developing assessment procedures that meet accepted standards for data collection and analyses; – reviews assessment procedures for consistency with goals and objectives; – reviews results of assessment activities and recommends improvements; and – reviews the progress of the college in implementing assessment activities;

Bridging The Gap: Cognitive Research & Instructional Practice

Bridging The Gap: Cognitive Research & Instructional Practice

This is a study group sponsored by Faculty Commons. We are like minded group of professors, from different departments, interested in cognitive research and instructional practice. We meet in multiple groups, led by Faculty Commons facilitators. We discuss the seven research-based principles for smart teaching and how to apply these principles in our teaching practice (text: “How Learning Works” by Susan A. Ambrose et al).
