Engineering Technology-Electronic and Computer Engineering Technology Option (BETB-EC)

Students may continue their studies in electronic and computer engineering technology beyond the associate degree level to obtain the bachelor of science degree. The bachelor’s degree typically requires two years of study beyond the associate degree.

Course work in the junior and senior years of the bachelor’s degree program provides additional depth of understanding of circuit analysis techniques, digital systems, data communications, and industrial electronics. Individual and group project assignments are emphasized. Additional mathematics, science, and elective courses provide a strong background with which graduates are prepared for the technical professions of tomorrow.

Graduates work as electronic and computer engineering technologists in many industrial settings. Career activities include product design and development, industrial automation, technical sales, and project management.

The bachelor’s degree program in electronic and computer engineering technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012. Telephone: (410) 347-7700. Website: www.abet.org.

Bachelor’s degree requirements (122 credit hours)

The electronic and computer engineering technology curriculum emphasizes the theory and application of electronic circuits, instrumentation, and systems. Numerous laboratory experiences reinforce the concepts taught in the classroom. Course work in this curriculum includes a strong foundation in basic circuit theory, semiconductor applications, digital systems, microprocessor programming and interfacing, plus essential concepts in mathematics, science, and interpersonal communications.
