The mission of the Computer Engineering Technology program is to prepare computer engineering technicians to pursue careers in the design, fabrication, and maintenance of digital systems. The program focuses on the theory and application of computer hardware and software. Students in this program study electric/electronic circuits analysis, digital circuits design and analysis, programming in multiple computer languages, microprocessor/microcontroller interfacing, digital communication, and computer systems and networks. Graduates are employed in areas such as computer hardware/software development and testing, digital systems design and testing, computer network installation and maintenance, and computer systems installation and maintenance.


Program Learning Outcomes
  1. The student will demonstrate an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline. 
  2. The student will demonstrate an ability to design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the engineering design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to the discipline. 
  3. The student will demonstrate an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature. 
  4. The student will demonstrate an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results. 
  5. The student will demonstrate an ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team. 
  6. The student will demonstrate an application of electric circuits, computer programming, associated software applications, analog and digital electronics, microcontrollers, operating systems, local area networks, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of computer systems and associated software systems. 
  7. The student will demonstrate an application of natural sciences and mathematics at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of computer systems and associated software systems.
