Message From The Chair
Welcome to the department of Electrical, Computer, and Telecommunications Engineering Technology, ECTET. I am happy you have found our website, and am confident you will find our majors engaging and rewarding.
ECTET provides rigorous and challenging academics that prepare our graduates to succeed in the engineering world. With a faculty committed to excellence, each undergraduate major provides a significant theoretical foundation coupled with extensive design and project experiences throughout the curriculum. Cooperative educational work experiences are the hallmark of an RIT education. Each ECTET undergraduate major includes 16 months of cooperative education.
Mathematics and the physical sciences are introduced in a just-in-time fashion while technical courses are incorporated into every semester of the five-year major. Students are introduced to the excitement of engineering in their very first semester as they design and construct printed circuit boards. Progressing through the curriculum, projects become larger and design experiences more intense. By the fifth year of the major, students participate in extensive, project-based, laboratory work as they ready themselves to be self-sufficient in the engineering workplace.
Opportunities abound for the students of ECTET. An engaging, relevant, and technologically current curriculum provides the foundation to launch a career that is limited only by one’s imagination. If you desire to excel in embedded systems design, power and energy, communications, or other high technology fields, ECTET is worth a closer look. With the possibility of undergraduate research, study abroad, and international cooperative education experiences, each student has the opportunity to grow, learn, and be challenged.
Thank you for visiting our website. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
