Bachelor of Technology in
COMPUTER ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY (BTech in CET)

A four year degree program in Computer Engineering Technology (CET)

The first two years of the baccalaureate program automatically earn the AAS degree in Electromechanical Engineering Technology. The program is designed such that students from other AAS programs like Electrical Technology and Mechanical Technology can also transfer smoothly to the BTech CET program.

The last two years of the CET program are built upon the knowledge gained at the AAS level. The last two years of the program place an emphasis on computer-controlled systems, computer networking, advanced coverage of computers and electronics, programming and advanced mathematics. Students are expected to apply, analyze, and think independently.

A wide selection of technical electives, including topics from computer engineering technology, electrical and telecommunications engineering technology, mechanical engineering technology, computer programming and design, give students considerable latitude to specialize in their own area of interest.

Options after Graduation

Graduates of this program can further pursue graduate programs in related areas such as Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science, or qualify for the occupational titles such as field engineer, systems engineer, computer repair technician, electrical technician, laboratory technician, help desk / technical support, computer security specialist, system analyst, project control engineer, network administrator and assistant / associate manager.

Potential employers for students graduated from this program are manufacturers and users of computer and electromechanical equipment. The list of employers of graduates of this program include Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), Metro North Rail Road, Consolidated Edison, NYC Department of Education, IBM, G.A.L Manufacturing Corporation, Earth Institute at Columbia, DMJM Harris Inc., Light Speed Connections and General Electric.
