The Computer Engineering Technology (CET) Club has started a new year at Lenoir Community College in Kinston.  The club consists of students in the Computer Engineering Technology Department at the College. The organization provides freshman and sophomore students an opportunity to interact with each other and students at other programs at LCC in such events as the Fall Festival and the Spring Joust.

This year the CET Club elected its new officers for the upcoming 2012-2013 academic year.  These officers are Thomas White, President; Timothy Kennedy, Vice President; Kevin Bannister, Secretary; Nee Nanthanorath, Treasurer; Justin Barr, Reporter and David V. Jones and Glenn Thompson serving as 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 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, DC/AC 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 program study computers and computer related equipment.

The LCC CET Department can help get you 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 the areas mentioned above,” Jones said. “Now is the time to start your career in a field with above average salaries.  It’s a career only you can control, a career with no ceiling.

“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,” Jones said.
