The Computer Engineering Technology (CET) Program prepares the student to use basic engineering principles and theories of science, engineering and mathematics to solve technical problems in research and development, install, service, and maintain computers, peripherals, networks, and microprocessor and computer controlled equipment.
Using modern electronic laboratories, students become familiar with:
- Circuit analysis
- Digital circuit design and analysis
- High-level programming
- Microprocessor/microcontroller programming and interfacing
- Computer architecture
- Operating systems and networking basics
Program Educational Objectives
The educational objectives of the Computer Engineering Technology Associate Degree
Program are to provide graduates with the knowledge, techniques, skills, and use of modern tools in computer engineering technology. Graduates have strengths in the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of computer systems and their associated software systems. The CET program includes instruction in the following topics:
- application of electric circuits, computer programming, associated software applications, analog and digital electronics, microcontrollers, operating systems, local area networks, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of computer systems and associated software systems; and
- 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.
