B.S. Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology

Program overview

Electrical & Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) primarily emphasizes the applied aspects of science and engineering and prepares graduates for work in that portion of the technological spectrum closest to product improvement, industrial processes, and operational functions.

The ECET program has direct impact on the growing and developing energy and environmental sectors, with dual-use technologies or civilian and military use. It will give graduates the necessary technical and managerial skills for careers in design, application, installation, manufacturing, operation and maintenance of electrical/electronic/computer systems.
