Engineering Technology - Information - Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology

Information Engineering Technology (IET) focusing on the study related to “Information Engineering” – its principles, technologies, networks, and applications. It is a vibrant discipline that has a tremendous impact on the economy as well as society. Information Engineering covers the following areas:

  • applied computer programming and coding,
  • solutions involving the creation, use, and administration of database technologies,
  • information communications & networking environments,
  • web and mobile technologies & applications,
  • operating systems technologies,
  • incident response and digital forensics,
  • information security, and
  • system integration.

Graduates of the program can expect to enter the workforce with titles that include, but are not limited to Systems or Network Administrator, Project Manager, Database Administrator, Computer Forensics Examiner, Cloud Systems Administrator, and Systems Engineer. 

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

Engineering Technology - Information (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.
