Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology: Associate in Applied Science

(66 semester hours)

This program, accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET (TAC/ABET 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone (410) 347-7700, http://www.abet.org/), includes course work in both electrical and electronic fields. It provides depth and breadth in the fundamentals as well as in the advanced technology found in modern electrical/electronic and computing systems. Hands-on labs are used to reinforce concepts taught in the classroom. Students develop the ability to analyze, synthesize, and solve technical problems. Topics of study include AC and DC circuit analysis, analog and digital electronics, programmable logic controllers, microprocessors, personal computer architecture, local area networks (LAN), and C++ and assembly language programming.

Graduates work as electronic technicians, electrical maintenance technicians, computer maintenance and network technicians, engineering assistants, computer and PLC programmers, and many other related paraprofessional positions. Graduates may also choose to continue their education toward a Bachelor of Applied Science degree.
