BS in Computer Engineering Technology
Embedded systems are at the heart of devices and systems you see every day. Computer engineers design embedded systems that are included within medical diagnostic equipment, digital cameras, missile guidance systems, anti-lock braking systems, scanners, copiers, switches, routers, and cell phones. The embedded systems designer requires knowledge of computer hardware and software. The computer engineering technology major is designed to meet industry’s ever-increasing need for employees with an in-depth knowledge of hardware and software design and development. The curriculum bridges the gap between these two disciplines by providing a solid foundation in each and integrating them with intensive classroom and laboratory experiences. The BS in Computer Engineering Technology major is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET http://www.abet.org .
