Students in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) Program study electronics and computers. The ECET program is designed for students who love computers and how they work and are interested in practical applications. Students in the program learn how to apply math, science, and engineering technology fundamentals to today’s technical challenges. The project-based learning (PBL) curriculum emphasizes the problem-solving, team-based learning, and communication skills needed to work in all industry sectors. ECET graduates contribute to technical advancements in society and pursue careers in industries such as transportation, communications, computer systems, electric power, renewable energy, electronics, aerospace, health care, media, and manufacturing.
The program emphasizes the application of microcomputers to the solution of industrial problems relating to automation, instrumentation, control of systems involving robotics, data communications, networks, and/or automated testing. In all cases, microcomputer hardware and software are used for data acquisition, transfer, and analysis.
Graduates of the program will:
- Apply their technical knowledge as practicing professionals or engage in graduate education.
- Work successfully in their chosen career individually and within a professional team environment.
- Engage in professional development in their profession by adapting to new technology and career challenges.
Total number of credits for the program: 126.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology, BS program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org/.
