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
The Computer Engineering Technology Program will prepare graduates:
- For careers in design, development, analysis, implementation, operation, and maintenance
of electronic circuits, computer hardware, software, networking systems, and/or embedded
- 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.
The CET graduate will have:
- an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools
of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
- 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;
- an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret
experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;
- an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering
technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
- an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
- an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology
- an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and
nontechnical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical
- an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing
- an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities
including a respect for diversity;
- a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global
- a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
Graduates of associate degree programs must demonstrate knowledge and hands-on competence
appropriate to the objectives of the program in: (AS prefix in course syllabi)
a) (1) the application of electric circuits, computer programming, associated
software applications, analog and digital electronics, microcomputers, operating systems,
local area networks, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation,
and maintenance of computer systems and associated software systems.
b) (2) the application of natural sciences and mathematics at or above
the level of algebra and trigonometry to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance
of computer systems and associated software systems.
In addition to the above, graduates of baccalaureate degree programs must demonstrate:
(BS prefix in course syllabi)
a) (3) the ability to analyze, design, and implement hardware and software
b) (4) the ability to apply project management techniques to computer systems.
c) (5) the ability to utilize statistics/probability, transform methods,
discrete mathematics, or applied differential equations in support of computer systems
