Computer Engineering Technology Concentration

The Computer Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://abet.org, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050 Baltimore, MD 21202-4012


Objectives

The Computer Engineering Technology Program will prepare graduates:

  1. For careers in design, development, analysis, implementation, operation, and maintenance of electronic circuits, computer hardware, software, networking systems, and/or embedded computer systems
  2. To lead teams as required, engage in self-directed continuing professional development, and join a professional society such as ASME, SAE, SME, ASEE, IEEE, etc.

Outcomes

The CET graduate will have:

  1. an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
  2. an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
  3. an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;
  4. an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
  5. an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
  6. an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;
  7. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and nontechnical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  8. an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
  9. an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
  10. a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and
  11. a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.

 

Discipline-Specific Criteria
