A Students Prelude to Management and Computer Science

A friend said, “I’ve visited your websites, viewed your articles, and looked at your background.” It’s apparent to me that you do not have a background in Information Technology (Computer Science) or Business Intelligence as a field of study acknowledging Computer Science. Does one have to have experience in I.T. or B.I. to qualify as a professional in the industry, or does it take a simple interest?

AutoCAD, C Language, Visual Basic, PowerPoint, JavaScript, Excel, Access, Cobol, Word (Microsoft Suite), Data Entry/Processing, D.O.S., Fortran, Lotus Notes, Management Information Systems, HTML, and Management cover a broad spectrum within the beginning or preparation in the world of IT / BI. The eclectic value of the specialization in one or more of this study group is the mastery and understanding of all.

I was contacted, recruited, and enrolled in a four-year college program about a week ago. The recruiter was adept at what she was doing, and I followed the schedule as presented. I continually asked, “How will I pay for these college courses?” When the prepared documentation was submitted for the finalization process, it all came down to dollars and cents. The financial aid person finally contacted me, assuming I was a prime candidate for the ‘Stafford Loan!’ This general education loan is designed for students to enroll in a given college.

I explained to the administrator that I was without money, had no wish to establish a loan (for anything), was unemployed, and my age was also a factor. I would be done in less than a year with the ability to complete the required studies. I have three years of accredited college courses with an associate’s degree. I estimated that I would be paying off a student loan for over a few years if I landed a job. I will soon be 60 years of age.

Burdened with an educational loan that would probably be on my plate well after I’m 65, I asked the recruiter and financial aid worker, “Do you believe that I would take out a loan for an extravagant amount of money in the hopes that I would get hired at my age?” A loan would be risky and improbable even if I were to start a new business. It would have been good if I could get back into the classroom.

What happened to the H1-B Program, the NAFTA Treaty, or the “Financial Hardship” Claus with the “Obama Letter” and ex-workers that are forced into the utilization/awarding of U.C. Benefits?

I was promptly dropped from the student roles by the four-year college. Meanwhile, I am offering data that may help anyone interested in pursuing computer science knowledge. This information will give you a leg up on what this multi-faceted field of study entails should you enroll in computer science and management courses. Many schools will teach these courses as pre-requisite(s) to advanced techniques in a four-year college. Even if you are not enrolled or intend to enroll in school but are only interested in how it works, the limited information detailed in this message will probably aid your preparation and research.

The outlined courses are:

COBOL (Common Business Oriented Language):

COBOL was first released in the 1960s as a joint venture of industry, universities, and the United States Government. COBOL aimed to provide a high-level computer programming language for the business world. COBOL directly addresses the basic needs of information processing while also being easy to use. (Take a look at SQL). COBOL, BASIC, C, JAVA, and PASCAL are high-end-level computer language(s) examples. A low-level language is a programming language requiring knowledge of a computer’s internal components…that is non-transferable.

Auto Cad (Computer Assisted Design):

2D (Dimensional) drafting tasks familiarize you with computer-assisted designing. Auto Cad is designed to assist you in creating landscape plans, including setting up layers and adding text and dimensions while making modifications. You can create electrical diagrams using symbols and attributes. You are taught how to extract the details into an Excel Spreadsheet Program.

Boolean operations and modeling construct and analyze complex 2D shapes and images for isometric drafting, a method for simulating 3D and L.T. drawings. Explaining the use of Auto Cad, one can learn to embed D.W.F. (Drawing Web Format) files in web pages. An overview of Auto Cad and progressive projects teaches you how to create drawing projects, landscape plans, and electrical schematics. The Internet-related topics include direct access to particular websites, opening and saving, drawings on the web, and embedding D.W.F. files in a web page,

C Language:

The available text on C Language enables the student to be taught both a rational approach to program development and an introduction to ANSI C. Because the first goal is primary, a disciplined approach to solving problems and applying widely accepted software engineering methods to design program solutions as cohesive, readable, and reusable modules. ANSI C (American National Standards Institute) is a standardized, industrial-strength programming language known for its power and portability. C Language helps students consolidate their understanding of pointers as arrays, output parameters, and file accesses before exploring the pointer’s role in dynamic memory allocation.

C Language is widely perceived to be tackled only after learning programming fundamentals in another friendlier language. Designers as a vehicle for programming the UNIX operating system, C Language found its original clientele among programmers who understood the complexities of the operating system and the underlying machine concepts that are not in the syllabus of a standard introductory programming course. C Language is for computer science majors and students of various other IT/BI disciplines.

Visual Basic:

The easiest and fastest way to write 32-bit Windows-based programs is the Microsoft Visual Basic Programming System. One can learn to work with ActiveX controls, compiler options, and new development tools. You can master programming fundamentals, including variables, decision structures, loops, and functions. Creating custom dialog boxes, clocks, menus, animation effects, managing text files, encryption, and sorting algorithms are learned through the utilization of Visual Basic Programming. V.B. also adds dimension and automation to integrate Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook, and other features into an application.

Other examples of the integrational power of Visual Basic include the ability to explore ActiveX controls that process RTF (Rich Text Format), run videos, display progress information, and play audio compact discs (C.D.s). You can also call the memory management function in the Windows API (Application Program Interface), download FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and HTML (HyperText Markup Language) files from the Internet and design DHTML (Dynamic HyperText Markup Language) pages, exploit ActiveX data objects (A.D.O.) with learned skills from Visual Basic.


PowerPoint is a computer presentation graphics package. It gives you everything you need to produce a professional-looking presentation, i.e., word processing, outlining, drawing, graphing, and presentation management tools. A formal presentation to a large audience using 35mm slides or a more intimate presentation in a small conference room using overhead monitors and an email presentation – PowerPoint has it all! The user is empowered with an outline to help organize their thoughts and an on-screen slide show with special effects such as animated bullet points, speaker notes, and audience handouts. Users of PowerPoint create color schemes, masters, and templates; there are ways to make the look you want for your presentation.

It is supposedly easy, according to some JavaScript authors. To start a simple script that makes cool things happen on your web page in addition to more complicated stuff, as you need it. Because the web is a dynamic medium, page designers want their pages to interact with the user. It soon became obvious that HTML was insufficient to handle the demand. Netscape invented JavaScript to control the web browser and add pizzazz and interactivity to your web pages.


Objectives – to reach the fundamentals of Microsoft Excel, expose students to examples of the computer as a useful tool, develop an exercise-oriented approach that will allow students to learn by example, and encourage independent study. Students are introduced to Excel terminology, the Excel window, and the basic characteristics of a worksheet and workbook. The applications include entering text and numbers, selecting a range using the auto sum button, copying using the fill handle, changing font size, bolding, centering across columns and rows (columns and fields), the auto-format command, charting using the chart wizard, and the auto-calculate area throughout the grid of columns and rows of the Excel spreadsheet. For any form of accounting, be it business, personal, or otherwise, Excel is a must-study program for recording, charting, and analytics.


Microsoft Access includes two tools that assist in helping to refine the design of an Access database. The G.U.I. (Graphic User Interface) Development Environment of Microsoft Access makes development easier, with menu commands, toolbars, buttons, tooltips, examples, and help screens. Sound, quality relational database design and development requires considerable knowledge and expertise, regardless of the platform. Access, a Relational Database Management System, can manage data files from a single database. A must-study course for any Data Base Administration, Business Administration, Secretarial Administration, and Computer Science students.

Word (CMOU – Certified Microsoft Office User):

Creating and editing Word documents; Wizards and Templates to create a Cover letter and Resume; starting a Research Paper with a Table; creating Web Pages; creating a document with a Title Page and Tables; generating Form Letters, Mailing Labels, and Envelopes; creating a Professional Newsletter and using Word Art to add Special Text Effects to a Word document.

D.O.S. (Direct Operating System):

Before Windows, there was D.O.S. With just a few mouse clicks, any Windows P.C. can revert to the original “Disk Operating System.” Under D.O.S., all program files are named with a C.O.M., an E.X.E., or a B.A.T. ending (a filename extension). The DIR (Directory) Command is used to find files by name and locate files in other subdirectories on a disk. The DIR command output shows a list of files on a disk. The list has five columns: the file’s name, the file’s extension (part of the name), the file’s size (in bytes or characters), the date the file was created or last modified, and the time of the last modification (changes).

Lotus Notes:

Lotus Notes is a Document-Centric Database Management System. Lotus Notes is a Cross-Platform, Secure, Distributed Document-Oriented Database, Messaging Framework, and Rapid Application Development Environment that includes Per-Built Applications. Lotus Notes is an Integrated Desktop Client Option for accessing business email and Groupware Systems. Lotus Notes operates as the Client Side of a Client-Server Application.

Fortran (A Scientific Language):

Formula Translation – was designed to allow easy translation of math formulas into a code of High-End Language. Fortran was created in the 1950s. It used the first compiler (A program that translates source code into object code) ever developed. Fortran was designed to be a programming language that was easy to learn and suitable for various applications. Fortran expresses mathematical functions, permitting severely complex mathematical operations to be defined similarly to regular algebraic notations.

RDBMS (Relational Database Management Systems):

RDBMS was designed for the business organization. It requires meticulous planning, setting up, and maintenance. A database collects information about a particular subject or purpose, such as tracking customer orders or maintaining a music collection. If your database isn’t stored on a computer, or only parts of it are, you may be tracking information from various sources that you must coordinate or organize yourself.

Access can manage all of your information from a single database file; within the file, divide your data into separate storage containers called tables; view, add, and update by using forms; find and retrieve just the data you want by using queries, and analyze or print data in the specific layout by using reports. RDBMS systems allow users to view, update, or explore the database’s data from multiple locations. When the data is updated, it is automatically updated everywhere it appears.

Information Management Systems (M.I.S.):

M.I.S. combines tech with business to get users the information they need to do their jobs Better, Smarter, and Faster. M.I.S. Systems are planned systems of collecting, processing, storing, and disseminating data in the form of information needed to carry out management functions. The technique (s) consists of people, equipment, and procedures to gather, sort, analyze, evaluate, and distribute needed, timely, and accurate information to decision-makers – “The Right Information to the Right People At The Right Time!”

M.I.S. is information technology management and is arguably not considered computer science. Armed with this information, the contingent, aspiring Computer Science, Business Administration, Secretarial Sciences, Computer Hardware (A plus), and Accounting Student(s) will face the challenges the IT/BI industry and the respective colleges have to dish out.

My friend and other cynics have caused me to wonder after comments were made. I asked what form of study it takes to qualify as a computer science student majoring in IT/BI. Well, I’ve studied the programs above and courses with an acceptable level of understanding, study, utilization, and practice…not to mention all of the other technological software/programs, articles, periodic reports, and white papers. Involved in the learning process? Is it due to my many years of experience in the transportation, hospitality, and customer service industry? Or was it? Was IT/BI Study/Research secondary? “One Never Knows. Do One?”
