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:

  • Computer Programming and Coding,
  • Database Technology,
  • Telecommunications & Networking,
  • Internet Technologies & Applications,
  • Operating Systems Technology,
  • Digital Forensics, and
  • Information Security.

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