|Graduates of this program possess an understanding and working knowledge of both computer hardware and software. With a command of the total environment, a computer technician is able to relate to both programmers and hardware engineers. The theory developed in the classroom is reinforced with laboratory work, which allows students to develop confidence and skill in their newly acquired knowledge and to accurately report the results of their observations. Along with two networked computer labs, students use the facilities available in three additional instrumented electronics labs.|
Computer Engineering Technology students share many common first-semester courses with the Electrical Engineering Technology students. This first semester provides students with a firm base in fundamental principles. Subsequent semesters’ offerings stress a systems approach, with students investigating computer-based applications from both a hardware and a software perspective. Interfacing computers with their peripherals and network applications are emphasized. Graduates are well prepared for admission to Vermont Tech’s Bachelor of Science program in Computer Engineering Technology.
With an extra year’s work, students may pursue a dual associate’s degree with Electrical Engineering Technology.
Computer Engineering Technology is available at our Randolph Center and Williston campuses.
