Program Description Computer Engineering Technology is a technological field requiring the application of scientific and engineering knowledge and methods, combined with technical skills, in support of computer activities. A computer engineering technologist is a person who is knowledgeable in computer hardware and software theory and design and who can apply them to a variety of industrial and consumer problems. Computers, controls/automation, robotics, instrumentation, and communications are just a few fields open to computer engineering technologists.
The program strives to prepare students for successful entry into the technical workforce. This means that the curriculum prepares students to:
  1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and computer engineering to problems.
  2. Design and construct experiments and analyze and interpret the resulting data.
  3. Design systems, components, or processes to meet specified needs.
  4. Function effectively in teams.
  5. Identify, formulate, and solve problems in computer engineering technology.
  6. Understand their professional and ethical responsibilities.
  7. Communicate effectively.

The Computer Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commmission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
