Computer Engineering Technology


The AAS degree in Computer Engineering Technology is accepted at some colleges and universities as the first two years of a bachelor’s-level engineering technology program. This program has been designed to either ease the transition for students planning to join the workforce, or to continue to UNC Charlotte’s BSET program or other universities.

Beginning with electrical fundamentals, course work progressively introduces electronics, circuit simulation, solid-state fundamentals, digital concepts, instrumentation, C++ programming, microprocessors, microcomputer applications, networking, operating systems, I/O hardware interfacing, industrial applications and data acquisition using LabView. Other course work includes the study of various fields associated with the electrical/electronic industry. There are several opportunities for industry certifications built into the program that allow students to add skills to their resume. Graduates should qualify for employment opportunities in electronics technology, computer service, computer networks, server maintenance, programming, and other areas requiring a knowledge of electronic and computer systems.
