Computer Engineering Technology (B.S.)


Return to: Academic Programs

Program: B.S.
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology
College of Engineering, Technology, and Computer Science

Engineering, Technology, and Computer Science Building 221 ~ 260-481-6338 ~ www.ecet.ipfw.edu

The main objective of the B.S. CPET program is to provide training for individuals who are seeking careers in designing, developing, programming, and implementing computer-based electronic systems, with an emphasis on computer networking. These computer-based electronic systems include local and wide-area networking; use of the Internet for communications and control; telecommunications systems; industrial personal computer-based and programmable logic controller (PLC) based control and automation systems; embedded-controller based systems; PC network-based instrumentation; communications; and data acquisition, storage, and application.

The curriculum described below provides a technical education in the area of industrial and enterprise computer networking. The core provides the student with basic instruction in analog and digital circuit analysis with hands-on laboratory work. It also introduces the fundamentals of computer systems, programming, and applications using word processors, spreadsheets, and highand low-level computer languages. The specialization area provides in-depth knowledge about networking and the requisite hardware and software. Other required courses provide mathematical and communication skills, and sufficient knowledge of the industrial environment to perform effectively in the workplace. the B.S. also enables you to pursue advanced degrees in management, engineering, technology, or computer science.

To earn the degree, you must fulfill the requirements of IPFW (see Part 7) and of the College of Engineering, Technology, and Computer Science (see Part 3); and complete the following courses:
