Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET)

ECET-logo

Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) curriculum include design, building and testing of a wide range of electronic and computer systems such as: machine controllers, communications devices, digital signal processing, instrumentation, computer security and networking. Our program includes a diverse exposure to programming languages such as Java and C. Additionally students take several courses in VHDL, a popular industry wide programming language used in electronic design.

In their senior year the students are required to take the senior capstone course that will showcase their technical knowledge in a variety of applications, such as product development or NASA competitions. The capstone includes community outreach, budget planning, reports and presentations to a panel of faculty and clients.
