In our modern digital age, it’s no longer considered “nerdy” to be fascinated by computers and technology. In fact, nerd culture is considered the height of cool, and techies are lauded and highly sought out for their knowledge and expertise. We all use computers in some way, shape, or form, so why not become better acquainted with your computer? In this course, we’ll peel back the layers and show you what’s behind the scenes of your machine.

Learning how to build a computer not only gives you the steps to physically build a unit, but it will also give you a better understanding and appreciation for how your computer functions. We’ll give you a crash course in computer lingo and explain all the terms you’ve always heard about – RAM, CPU, Graphics Card, etc. and show you why they’re important. We’ll also advise you on the parts and accessories you should be using to get the most from your machine.

Whether you’re dissatisfied with floor models and want to build a custom unit, or just want to know how your computer works, this course is perfect for the computer-curious individual who wants to learn more about their technology.
