Engineering Technology - Electronics and Computer - Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology
The 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, renewable energy technologies, 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. 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 122 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.

Students may need to take any prerequisites needed to enter MATH 1511G Calculus and Analytic Geometry I/MATH 1435 Applications of Calculus I or MATH 1521G Calculus and Analytic Geometry II/MATH 1440 Applications of Calculus II before enrolling in either option of coursework.
*For students wishing to pursue a technical master's degree, MATH 1511G Calculus and Analytic Geometry I and MATH 1521G Calculus and Analytic Geometry II are recommended and will satisfy both the Area II and General Education Elective requirements. Students who take MATH 1435 Applications of Calculus I and MATH 1440 Applications of Calculus II, will need to have an exception made for their degree audit.
