Computer Engineering Technology Concentration

The Computer Engineering Technology Concentration provides in-depth knowledge of hardware and software design, development, and maintenance. The curriculum is based on a solid foundation with intensive classroom and laboratory experiences. Students will gain a strong background in cutting-edge development with programming languages currently used in industry. In addition, students will learn industry standard approaches to application software development as well as state-of-the-art problem-solving techniques for developing applications code and firmware including networking / web operations.

The hardware focus of the curriculum is on digital systems design and development. From low-level gate design to high-end microprocessors and current bus standards, students gain an architectural understanding of computer systems. The curriculum includes in-depth design and analysis of combinational logic, sequential logic and state machines, microcontroller systems, microprocessor systems, and state-of-the-art computer technology.
