Engineering Technology - Electronics and Computer - Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology

Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) curriculum includes design, building and testing a wide range of electronic and computer systems including digital and analog system, microprocessor systems, machine or micro-controllers, communications devices, applied power systems, digital signal processing, instrumentation, computer networking. Our program includes a diverse exposure to programming languages such as Java and C as well as the electronic design language of HDL.

The ECET program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET. www.abet.org.

Engineering Technology - Electronics and Computer (No Concentration)

Students must complete all University degree requirements, which include: General Education requirements, Viewing a Wider World requirements, and elective credits to total at least 120 credits with 48 credits in courses numbered 300 or above. Developmental coursework will not count towards the degree requirements and/or elective credits, but may be needed in order to take the necessary English and Mathematics coursework.
