Computer Engineering Technology
The Computer Engineering Technology program shares a number of commonality with Electronics Engineering Technology; and their objectives are quite similar. However, the educational program objectives that are relatively unique to the Computer Engineering Technology program are:
1. To provide students with better understanding of Computer Engineering Technology with state-of-the-art microcomputer systems.
2. To provide our students with computer and software skills that will enable them to solve scientific and engineering technology problems.
3. To equip our students with knowledge of design structures and buildings.
4. To equip our students with the knowledge of design, installation, configure, network, of microcomputer systems.
5. To provide our students with a solid foundation in mathematics, basic sciences, and electronics engineering technology.
6. To provide our students with a thorough understanding of digital circuits, microcomputer architecture and systems.
7. To educate our students on ethics and professional responsibilities required in the field of electronics engineering technology (in ENGT 333 class).
8. To encourage our students to participate in professional societies, such as IEEE, NSBE, Tau alpha pi, and NTA.
9. To educate our students on how to conduct professional activities and be able to demonstrate a thorough sense of social, cultural diversity and environmental responsibility.
