Fall Term Begins


Oregon Tech’s Computer Engineering Technology (CET) degree will teach you computer systems along with the traditional aspects of applied engineering. This unique mix of hands-on and theory-driven study makes our graduates highly sought after by high-tech corporations. Our program prepares students to apply both hardware and software systems to computer applications.

Oregon Tech offers:

  • High tech industry education to students to prepare them to contribute on Day One of their job.
  • Students are able to design, implement, and test for the applied engineering environment.
  • Students will be exposed to cross-disciplinary educational programs to promote a sense of scholarship, leadership, and professional service.

Hardware and Software Common First Year

The CSET Department's common first year allows you to take courses in all three modalities. This common core enables you to sample courses in the Computer Engineering Technology, Embedded Systems Engineering Technology, and Software Engineering Technology programs helping you make a more educated decision based on your experiences in your first year of college.

CSET Department's Common First Year

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.
