Curriculum Information Guide

Computer Engineering Technology

Dr. Adam Filios, Chair
Electrical/Computer Engineering Technology Department
School of Engineering Technology


Bachelor of Science Degree

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Computer Engineering Technology is designed to address the ever increasing need for graduates possessing skills in both computer programming and computer hardware (digital electronics), and in the underlying principles of networking.

The program establishes a sound foundation in applied mathematics and physics including the necessary principles of electrical engineering technology, computer engineering technology, elective choices in the arts, sciences and the humanities. Transfer admission is easily available to students from related degree programs.

Graduates of this program, engineering technologists, will be well prepared to fill the wide range of engineering technology positions which rely upon an understanding of hardware and software applications of digital, microprocessor, microcontroller, and computer based systems.

This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org

Computer Engineering Technology (BS) Program Outcomes:

  • Graduates will be technically competent and have the necessary skills, and experience with modern tools of their discipline to enter careers where they can apply their knowledge in the areas of networking and data communications, microprocessors, digital systems, and technical project management.

  • Graduates will use scientific methodologies and critical thinking skills to identify, analyze, and design solutions to technical problems in the areas of networking and data communications, microprocessors, and digital systems.

  • Graduates will exhibit good communication skills, an ability to work collaboratively as a member of a team, as well as a recognition of the need for life-long learning and a commitment to continuous improvement.  

Student Learning Outcomes: Computer Engineering Technology

Upon completion of the program students will be able to:

1. Apply knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, or technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline

2. Design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline

3. Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly defined technical and nontechnical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature

4. Conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes

5. Function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team
