Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology

Program Educational Objectives

Computer Engineering Technology Program Educational Objectives (PDF)

These are statements that describe the expected accomplishments of graduates during their first few years after graduation. The audiences for objective statements are external constituents such as prospective students, alumni, employers, transfer institutions and student sponsors.

Once our students are out in the workforce they should be able to:

  1. Apply technical knowledge and skills in electrical, electronics, computer systems, computer programming, associated software applications, as well as engineering standards in computer systems and associated software;
  2. Apply science based theory and calculus based mathematical concepts and tools to identify, analyze, evaluate, and solve technical issues in computer systems and associated software systems;
  3. Design, develop, implement, test, analyze, evaluate, and manage electrical & electronic devices, systems, and software programming in support of computer systems and associated software systems.
  4. Work in diverse, multi-disciplinary professional teams, demonstrate effective communication and management skills.
  5. Maintain ethical standards, environmental concerns and social awareness.
  6. Demonstrate an understanding of the need for life-long learning, acquiring new knowledge, and mastering emerging technologies using new engineering standards and methods.

These are statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire in their matriculation through the program.

By the time of graduation, students in the Computer Engineering Technology program will have or demonstrate:

  1. an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
  2. an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
  3. an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;
  4. an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
  5. an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
  6. an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;
  7. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  8. an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
  9. an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
  10. a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context;
  11. a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement;
  12. the application of electric circuits, computer programming, associated software applications, analog and digital electronics, microcomputers, operating systems, local area networks, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of computer systems and associated software systems;
  13. the 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;
  14. the ability to analyze, design, and implement hardware and software computer systems;
  15. the ability to apply project management techniques to computer systems; and
  16. the ability to utilize statistics/probability, transform methods, discrete mathematics, or applied differential equations in support of computer systems and networks.
