PROFESSOR DHUSHY SATHIANATHAN, Interim Head, School of Engineering Design, Technology, and Professional Programs
This major is designed to prepare graduates for technical positions in the rapidly expanding field of computers and their applications. A broad background in electrical and electronic principles is used as a foundation upon which to build the basic concepts of the microprocessor, to examine its internal functions, and to investigate its applications. Exposure to a variety of microprocessor computer systems and devices used with computers as well as hands-on experience in the operation, analysis, and construction of small computer systems provides graduates with a sound foundation for installing, diagnosing, and servicing of computer systems and the devices used with them.
Graduates of the Computer Engineering Technology major may qualify for admission to the baccalaureate degree majors in Electrical Engineering Technology or in Computer Engineering Technology offered at Penn State Harrisburg. Or they may qualify for the baccalaureate Electrical Engineering Technology major offered at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College.
For the Associate in Engineering Technology degree in Computer Engineering Technology, a minimum of 73 credits is required.
