Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology


Bachelor of Science | College of Liberal Arts and Applied Science

What is Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology?

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.

What are the features of Miami’s program?

The Department of Engineering Technology, traces its origin to about half a century ago. The courses that are offered in this department (only in Middletown and Hamilton Campuses) are more applied and less math-intensive compared to engineering degrees. Most of the engineering classes are held in the evenings, which provides this opportunity to our student to work full-time during the day. Most of our students are wither already employed, or participate in our co-op program. Close to 100% of our students have a job or have secured a job before they graduate.

What are the special admission requirements, if any?

There are no additional admission requirements for this program.

What courses would I take?

The electrical component of the curriculum includes course work such as

  • Computerized Instrumentation
  • Electro-Mechanical Control Systems
  • Wireless Communication and Networking

The computer component focuses on:

  • Embedded Systems Technology
  • Digital Signal Processing Technology

What can I do with this major?

ECET graduates will work in a wide spectrum of careers including

  • Automated manufacturing
  • Instrumentation and control
  • Medical systems
  • Energy and environmental systems
  • Wireless communication
  • Digital signal processing

Graduates will be qualified for positions in which they can use technology to develop new products and solve problems.
