Throughout the program, you will be exposed to fundamental knowledge areas in Computer Engineering Technology which include:
- Digital logic and digital systems design using Verilog and other languages
- Architecture and design of computing systems involving FPGA and Microprocessor devices
- Project Management
- Networking and Data Communications
- Lower level software and scripting in languages such as C/C++ and Python
Internships and Co-ops
Even before students graduate, many choose to participate in internships and co-op programs. The CET program is a proud member of MECOP where students will complete two 6-month paid internships. Companies hiring Oregon Tech CET interns include Intel, Mentor Graphics, Cisco, Actel, and Altera. Other students will participate in less formalized internships at companies like JELD-WEN.
Computer & Software Concurrent Degree
Students who are interested in both the hardware and software aspects of computers can earn bachelor's degrees in computer engineering technology and software engineering technology at the same time. The ability to be able to design both hardware and software is highly sought after in the industry since people with both skill sets can solve a wider range of technical problems.
