Engineering Technology is a branch of engineering education that emphasizes the practical aspects of engineering rather than abstract concepts or theories. It is a blend of the application of science, engineering knowledge, and technical skills used in support of engineering activities. The development of the microcomputer has created a need for engineering technologists with a specialized knowledge of computers and control systems. The bachelor degree in computer engineering technology was created to meet this need.

The degree program in computer engineering technology utilizes a core of mathematics, physics, and electronics courses. These courses provide the scientific and technical background for an in-depth study of the hardware and software aspects of computers and related systems.

The emphasis of the program is on microcomputers and their application to the solution of industrial problems relating to robotics, control, instrumentation, monitoring, data communications, networks, and automated testing.

Graduates of these programs are qualified for employment as engineering technologists with companies that utilize computers in computation and control activities as well as companies that design, manufacture, market, install, and service computers and computer networks.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
