Computer engineering technology students learn to develop and to implement computer applications used every day. From microprocessors to memory systems, software, and PCs—computers have revolutionized the way we live and work. Your knowledge can influence this everyday technology: handheld devices, networks, medical equipment, smartphones, robotics, and more. An engineering technology degree allows you to use new and emerging technology to install, service, and maintain software and hardware and to solve problems as part of a larger project.
Skills and abilities this major develops include: troubleshooting; problem solving; math skills; application and design of hardware; conducting and interpreting experiments; utilizing systems and software programs; and installing, servicing, testing, repairing and maintaining computer systems.
