The mission of the Computer Systems Engineering Technology (CSET) Department at Oregon Institute of Technology is to prepare our students for productive careers in industry and government by providing an excellent education incorporating industry relevant, applied laboratory based instruction in both the theory and application of embedded systems engineering. Our focus is educating students to meet the growing workforce demand in Oregon and elsewhere for graduates prepared in both hardware and software aspects of embedded systems.
The CSET department believes strongly in the hands-on education learning model that Oregon Tech is famous for. All of the bachelor programs in the CSET department have two project sequences: Junior Projects – a three-term team based
project and Senior Projects - a three-term individual project. In addition, most of the CSET classes have a lab component built into the course.
Students graduating from CSET programs are prepared for a future in designing and implementing large scale enterprise applications. In addition, it provides a solid understanding of object oriented analysis and design, software testing, design patterns,
data structures, operating systems, and compiler methods
