Welcome to our department's web site.

The Computer Technologies Department compliments the Great Basin College mission by delivering computer technology education to a diverse and dynamic population. One of the hallmarks of the department is its ability to respond to the current and future needs of the community.

Currently there are three full-time instructors in this department on the Elko campus. We also rely on many dedicated part-time instructors to help cover our various class offerings. We offer a variety of classes covering many technologies including: courses for computer novices, office applications like the MS Office Suite, programming in Java and C++, computer networking, and specialized applications in graphics, GIS, multimedia, Linux, land surveying/geomatics, and more. We also have courses for students who would like to succeed with MCSE, Comp-TIA, and other certification exams.
