Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology- Associate in Applied Science

This program includes course work in both electrical and electronic and computer fields. It provides depth and breadth in the fundamentals as well as in the advanced technology found in modern electrical/electronic and computing systems. Hands-on labs are used to reinforce concepts taught in the classroom. Students develop the ability to analyze, synthesize, and solve technical problems. Topics of study include AC and DC circuit analysis, analog and digital electronics, programmable logic controllers, microprocessors, local area networks (LAN), and C++ and assembly language programming. This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET (111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone 410-347-7700, http://www.abet.org/.)

Graduates work as electronic technicians, electrical maintenance technicians, computer maintenance and network technicians, engineering assistants, computer and PLC programmers, and many other related paraprofessional positions. Graduates may also choose to continue their education toward a Bachelor of Applied Science degree.
