Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology (Bachelor of Science, B.S.)

The B.S. degree in Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology focuses on studies which integrate computer software and computer hardware technology subject matter.

The B.S. in Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology degree will provide the student with an understanding of microcomputer hardware design, troubleshooting, upgrading, and maintenance as well as a moderate level of computer software programming experience. The student will also be trained in programmable logic controller functioning as well as utilization of hardware and software knowledge to enter into the field of human/machine interface work.  The B.S. degree study program enables the student  to obtain work in the programmable controls area of the industrial sector of the economy.

Program Educational Objectives (BS ECET):

  1. Possess the general knowledge of electronics and computer industry such as concepts, terminologies, basic and standard problem-solving techniques.
  2. Demonstrate the ability to analyze, program, and implement electronic systems in one or more of the areas related to control systems, communications systems, or computer systems.
  3. Function effectively in a group environment in the industrial workplace through demonstration of technical and communication skills.
  4. Understand professional, ethical, and social responsibilities.
  5. Show respect for diversity and knowledge of contemporary professional, societal and global issues.
  6. Demonstrate a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
  7. Continue professional development through life-long learning.
