Major in Computer Engineering Technology, BS (124 credits)

The BS in computer engineering technology (CET) was granted licensure in November 2004. The CET degree responds to the fact that computers and networks have been two of the leading technologies driving engineering job markets. As with many of the programs in the School of Technology, students explore hardware and software in a hands-on dedicated networking laboratory. Students will use computational methods, computers, and modern technical tools in engineering practice, in addition to learning about state-of-the-art technology in the areas of wired and wireless network communication, engineering design, advanced PC operating systems, internet technology, and computer programming.

As students gain knowledge of hardware and engineering processes and prepare to take industry-based certification exams, they can look forward to well-paying careers. Some will become systems administrators, network administrators, system designers, quality control engineers, and software developers. Others may find positions as information technologists, lab technicians, system maintenance experts, system testers, and help desk operators. There is a graduation requirement of a capstone assessment during a student's final year of study.
