As some of you may or may not know I started taking classes at Ivy Tech
(Indiana's state-wide community college system) last year. Everything's good so far but the thing is that I want to attend Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW)
and get a four year degree. That's not a problem. There's a program called Crossroads
that allows me to start studying at Ivy Tech (which is cheaper) and finish at IPFW. The computer stuff I may want to study is not available with Crossroads but I can still take Gen-Ed classes at Ivy Tech and transfer those. Herein lies the problem. What do I study? I've got three options so far: Information Technology
, Computer Engineering
and Computer Engineering Technology
My only bias is that IT seems like a clearer path. Takes less math and I already know what kind of certs the job needs. I know nothing about CE and CET. I don't know what I'd work in if I do get either of those degrees. Can someone tell me what kind of job a degree in that field would grant you? I don't know what to do.
My second problem is that I bombed the math placement exam when I entered Ivy Tech. It had been 10yrs since I had taken any math class and the hardest thing you do in the PR school system is pre-Algebra. Needless to say I'm rusty as hell. I would like to know if anyone knows of online resources to freshen up my math skills and learn more things needed for college so I can retake the placement exam and not have to do 4 semesters worth of Math just so I can be admitted to IPFW.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
