Degree Plan

The goal of the Computer Engineering Technology program is to provide students with a high quality applications-oriented undergraduate education based on state-of-the-art technology as a preparation for productive employment in the broad field of microcomputer applications. Microcomputers, frequently linked in networks, are used in a wide variety of fields. Microcomputers are used to produce documents, perform accounting tasks, and organize information and inventories for business and industry. They are also used to control processes in manufacturing, chemical production and oil refining. Microcomputers are often key components for routing data and conversations in telephone communication, or in providing the best shipping, billing, routing, and inventory information for shipping and trucking, or for passenger ticketing and routing information for airlines. Computers and appropriate software packages are often used to solve scientific and engineering problems, to aid in medical tests and diagnoses, and to help design structures and buildings. With computers assisting nearly every professional and leisure activity of modern life, people who can design, install, configure, network, and repair microcomputer systems can make a valuable contribution to business and industry. People familiar with both the hardware and software requirements of computers are especially valuable. Computer Engineering Technology majors study the application of state-of-the-art components and software in contemporary computer systems.
