About the B.S. in Computer Engineering Technology
The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology program designed to address the need for graduates with skills in computer programming, computer hardware and computer networks. The Computer Engineering Technology program provides students with the opportunity to focus on applications and implementations more than theory and conceptual design. This program is open for new enrollment and for transfer students from community colleges.
The Computer Engineering Technology program will prepare graduates with the skills necessary to enter careers in the design, application, installation, programming, networking, and operation of computer systems. Graduate students are well prepared for development and implementation of computer systems and networks.
Engineering programs often focus on theory and conceptual design, while engineering technology programs usually focus on application and implementation. Engineering programs typically require additional, higher-level mathematics, including multiple semesters of calculus and calculus-based theoretical science courses, while engineering technology programs typically focus on algebra, trigonometry, applied calculus, and other courses that are more practical than theoretical in nature.
