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 programs 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 program 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 program includes 12 months of cooperative education during the student’s final three years.

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 program.  Students are introduced to the excitement of engineering in their very first semester with copious laboratory exercises in multiple courses.   Progressing through the curriculum, projects become larger and design experiences more intense.  By the fifth year of the program, 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, audio, power and energy, communications, or other high technology fields, please take a close look at what ECTET has to offer.  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.

Best wishes,

Professor Mike Eastman
