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

Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) program includes the design, building and testing of a wide range of electronic and computer circuits and systems, including hardware/software digital systems, microprocessor systems, analog circuits, machine or micro-controllers, communications devices, applied power systems, signal processing and filter circuits, instrumentation systems, and computer networks. Our program includes a diverse exposure to programming languages, as well as hardware description languages, such as VHDL

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

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.
