Computer Engineering Technology Emphasis and Minors

Computer Engineering Technology is an interdisciplinary field of study that crosses into several other fields of study. This provides the students with opportunities for minors in these fields.

The CET program consists of a general core that is complemented by the following emphasis areas or courses:


  • Microprocessors
  • Microcontrollers
  • Embedded Computers
  • Computer Interfacing
  • Computer Architecture
  • Computer Programming
  • Advanced Programming Devices


For more Engineering focused students we recommend these two minors.


Minor in Automation Engineering


Automation Engineering is unique. It is the study how to build self-operating machines and how to develop self-operating systems. It merges the fundamentals of electrical, electronic, mechanical, environmental, computer, information and instrumentation engineering.

The requirements for a minor in Automation Engineering require a total of 18 hours as follows:


230/LInstrumentation Lab2 hrs
396Engineering Laboratory Internship3 hrs
499Undergraduate Research3 hrs
316Digital Communication Systems3 hrs
477/LControl Systems/Lab4 hrs
478/LDigital Control Systems/Lab3 hrs



Minor in Electronics Engineering Technology

The requirements for a minor in Electronics Engineering are a total of 19 hours including the following courses.


101/LIntroductory Electronics3 hrs
110/LIntroduction to DC Circuits4 hrs
200/LAssembly and Fabrication Laboratory2 hrs
230/LInstrumentation Laboratory2 hrs
311/LApplication of Semiconductor Devices4 hrs



Minor in Computer Science 

Computer Engineering provides a merging between hardware and software throughout the major, a minor in Computer Science would expand the students programming abilities.


Required Courses:

101/LComputer Science 14 hrs
102Computer Science 24 hrs
307Data Structures and Algorithm Analysis 3 hrs


Additionally 9 hours of Computer Science classes are required. Recommended courses are: 203 ,204 ,300 ,305 ,306 ,309 ,317 ,320 ,408 ,410 ,411 ,412 ,413 ,414/L ,415 ,420 ,421 ,422 ,424 ,425 ,426 ,435 ,485 ,486. Course Descriptions
