Electrical and computer engineering technologists bridge the gap between design and implementation, research and development, and transition and operation. They are involved in the design, development, and sustainment of technology solutions that touch every aspect of modern life, from manufacturing to medical devices, from avionics to automotive, from wireless devices to financial services.
The degree in electrical & computer engineering technology provides students with a comprehensive skill set in programming as well as electrical and computer engineering design and implementation with more modest requirements for study of mathematics and the basic sciences than traditional electrical and computer engineering programs.
Program requirements include coursework in the following areas.
- Circuits and electronic devices
- Control systems
- C/C++ programming
- Programmable logic controllers
- Embedded systems
- Capstone design
The first two years of the B.S. in Electrical & Computer Engineering Technology is aligned with the B.S. in Electrical Engineering, permitting students to seamlessly transition between the two degree programs before beginning their third year of studies.
Graduates of the program will be prepared to compete for employment in fields tied to hundreds of jobs in the local region and tens of thousands of jobs nationwide.
Areas of relevant local employment include the following.
- Sensor development
- Power systems
- Medical devices
