Do you like Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology?

The ECET Program at USM is designed to provide students with a broad-based engineering technology education curriculum. The program implements the concept of engineering theory in the classroom and application of theory in the laboratory. In addition to fundamental concepts, students are immersed in applications of new technology. 

The ECET program is a combination of two programs: electronics engineering technology and computer engineering technology. Both programs are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.

What Will I Learn?

Students will study circuit analysis, analog and digital electronics, automation, manufacturing, commercial and industrial controls, microcomputer applications, embedded systems, computer technology, instrumentation, telecommunications, power generation and others.

Faculty Research

Students can join research projects of the faculty in summer and during fall and spring semesters. Faculty research topics include human activity recognition, image processing, big data analytics, drone and robotics, intelligent traffic controls, analog and digital communication systems. Student researchers are trained for higher-level research skills. They know how to implement models to solve practical problems, how to use the latest software for simulation, and where to find resources to solve complicated problems.
