Electronic and Computer Engineering Technology
Apply software and hardware solutions to industry-based problems, develop software and design systems, build prototypes and test solutions through electronic and computer engineering technology. You will also develop a strong background in circuit design, electronics, measurements, digital computers, and data acquisition and control, preparing you for success in a variety of high-tech careers.
There is more than one way to start an engineering career, and engineering technology may be the pathway for you. As an electronic and computer engineering technology major, you will receive a strong background in applied engineering, integrated laboratory experiences and the implementation of design projects. You will prepare for your career as you explore applied areas of engineering, including digital communications, digital and electronic circuits, electronic design, instrumentation, microcontrollers, microprocessors and programming.
To develop cross-functional skills and prepare you for success in this evolving field, our curriculum includes core courses in electronic and computer engineering technology and electives in other disciplines. As a senior, you will further develop your leadership, project management and technical skills as your multi- disciplinary team analyzes, designs and builds a system to solve a real-world problem.
If you wish to expand your studies in a specific area, you can select courses or a minor in quality assurance or industrial, manufacturing or mechanical engineering. You may also pursue a certificate in the Integrated Arts & Technology program.
The electronic and computer engineering program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, 410-347-7700.
