Computer Engineering Technology


The objective of the Computer Engineering Technology concentration of the Department of Advanced Technology is to prepare students for careers that require an extensive knowledge of both computer hardware and computer software. The concentration offers a reasonably equal balance of study and experience in both the hardware and software area, enabling graduates to be well prepared for a career in programming, hardware design/test, system administration, diagnosing computer hardware and software, or other related areas. It is well known that well-educated computer engineers typically should have a thorough knowledge of computer hardware and a thorough knowledge of software since both areas constitute a computer system, specializing in one area (hardware or software) would not be enough to be an exceptional computer engineer. In addition, this concentration aims to provide its graduates a basis for further study at prominent colleges and universities. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has the Average Starting Salary, 2007, as $56,201 and the growth projection for 2006-2016, as 5%.
