Turn your talent for computers into an exciting career with a degree in Computer Engineering Technology. The program combines electronics and digital theory, providing a comprehensive background in both hardware and software through classroom and laboratory learning. Graduates are prepared for technical careers working with PC-based systems, digital/analog equipment, and troubleshooting and maintaining hardware, software, networking, and interfaces.
In this program, you will study basics of electronic devices, technical math, physics, computer language, circuitry, data acquisition and networking, and other aspects of computer engineering. Rounding out the curriculum are courses in communication, sociology, psychology, and speech. You’ll demonstrate competency with an individual project at the end of the course, which will include a hardware and software component, a written report, and an oral presentation complete with budget, timetable, schematics, and a daily log.
Upon completion, you can enter the workforce or take calculus courses at Western and transfer directly into the Computer Science bachelor's degree at UW-La Crosse.
