    Computer Technology . Grade 10 . Open . TEJ2O1
    This course introduces students to computer systems, networking, and interfacing, as well as
    electronics and robotics. Students will assemble, repair, and configure computers with various types
    of operating systems and application software. Students will build small electronic circuits and write
    computer programs to control simple peripheral devices or robots. Students will also develop an
    awareness of environmental and societal issues related to the use of computers, and learn about
    secondary and postsecondary pathways to careers in computer technology. Prerequisite: none

    Information Technology in Business . Grade 10 . Open . BTT2O1
    This course introduces you to information and communication technology in a business environment
    and builds a foundation of digital literacy skills necessary for success in a technologically driven
    society. Students will develop word processing, spreadsheet (including charting), database (how
    many MP3 tracks do you really have by Nelly?), desktop publishing (graphic layout and brochures),
    presentation software (with sound and animation), digital photo manipulation, and website
    design skills. Throughout the course, there is an emphasis on digital literacy, effective electronic
    research and communication skills, and current issues related to the impact of information and
    communication technology. Prerequisite: none

    Computer Engineering . Grade 11 . University/College Preparation . TEJ3M1
    If you want to know more about how the Internet works, or what makes your computer tick, or how
    to perform computer upgrades, then this course may be for you. You will assemble computers and
    small networks by installing and configuring hardware and software. You will learn how computers
    connect to websites and how networks connect with each other. You will discover the electronics
    within the computer that enable it to function. Furthermore you will develop an awareness of related
    environmental and societal issues, and will learn about college and university programs leading to
    careers in computer technology. Prerequisite: none

    Electronics . Grade 11 . University/College Preparation . TEL3M1
    This course focuses on fundamental electronic circuit principles: theory, design and fabrication.
    Students will develop circuit analysis techniques applied to direct current (DC) circuits. Concepts
    include: soldering techniques as applied to circuit board fabrication, resistor circuits, digital gates
    and semiconductor devices. Students will learn about tools, materials and equipment used in the
    fabrication of printed circuit board based “take home” projects such as: flip/flop display, continuity
    tester and LED based bike flasher. Test equipment will be used to troubleshoot any faulty circuits.
    The majority of class time will be “hands on” developing these industry standard skills.
    Prerequisite: TEJ2O1 recommended, but not required[/slider]
  • [slider title=”GRADE 12 COMPUTER STUDIES” group=”accordion-1″]
    Computer Engineering . Grade 12 . College/University Preparation . TEJ4M1
    This course extends students’ understanding of computer systems and computer interfacing with
    external devices. Students will assemble computer systems by installing and configuring appropriate
    hardware and software, and will learn more about fundamental concepts of electronics, robotics,
    programming, and networks. Students will examine environmental and societal issues related to the
    use of computers, and explore postsecondary pathways leading to careers in computer engineering
    and related fields. Prerequisite: TEJ3M1

    Electronics . Grade 12 . College/University Preparation . TEL4M1
    This course examines communications systems and design and production processes in the areas of
    electronic, live, recorded, and graphic communications. Students will create, manage, and distribute
    complex electronic, graphic, recorded, or audio-visual projects independently and in project teams.
    Students will also study industry standards and regulations and health and safety issues, and will
    explore careers, the importance of lifelong learning, and the impact of communications technology
    on society and the environment. Students will be involved in testing and analyzing AC circuits, audio,
    radio, video, and operational amplifiers. Students will be able to design a simple audio amplifier and
    power supply. Prerequisite: TEL3M1
