Understand how Engineering and Science Drive Computer Design

If you enjoy science and math and are interested in automation, computers, and technology, then you may wish to pursue an Associate of Engineering in Computer Engineering Technology degree. Designed to provide you with the fundamental skills required for an entry-level position in computer engineering or software development, this program also serves as a solid foundation for pursuing a bachelor’s degree in a related field.

Program and Student Learning Objectives

Core and foundation courses allow students the opportunity to think critically and gain insights into disciplines other than their field of study. Students develop expertise in written and oral communication with diverse individuals and organizations. Requirements include using traditional and emerging technologies to accomplish tasks effectively and using appropriate mathematical and physics techniques and concepts to obtain solutions to problems.

With an Associate of Engineering in Computer Engineering Technology graduates can learn how to:

  • Design and conduct tests on prototypes or develop systems and effectively communicate results
  • Configure, install and properly use basic electronic hardware and operating system/application software in conventional use with existing computer systems
  • Demonstrate proficiency with current forms of application software and operating systems that are in use in the industry of choice

The Associate in Engineering in Computer Engineering Technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc.
