Electrical & Computer Engineering Technology

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology program offers both a bachelor of science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) and an associate of science degree in Electrical Engineering Technology (EET).

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

Associate of Science in EET
  1. Graduates of our Associate Degree Program are involved in selling, installing, operating, maintaining, troubleshooting or repairing systems of electrical equipment, electronics and computers, in a variety of applications, such as microprocessors and micro-controllers; industrial control systems; instrumentation; hospital & biomedical equipment; power generation and transmission; computer hardware, software and networks.
  2. Graduates of our Associate Degree Program are academically prepared to continue their education in our Bachelor’s Degree Program.
Bachelor of Science in ECET
  1. Graduates of our Bachelor’s Degree Program are involved in specifying, designing, or developing new applications, based on electrical, electronics and computer systems, in a variety of applications, such as microprocessors and micro-controllers; industrial control systems; instrumentation; hospital & biomedical equipment; power generation and transmission; computer hardware, software and networks.
  2. As their careers advance, graduates of our Bachelor’s Degree Program will supervise teams of engineers, technologists and technicians, and use their written and verbal communications skills.
  3. Graduates of our Bachelor’s Degree Program are prepared to advance their education and many will choose to do so.
