Computer Engineering Technology B.S.

Program Accreditation

All of our programs are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, Inc. ( ABET is a specialized accrediting board recognized by the Council for Higher Education and/or the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.

Program Mission

The mission of the Computer Engineering Technology (CET) bachelor's degree program in the Computer Systems Engineering Technology (CSET) Department at Oregon Institute of Technology is to provide an excellent education incorporating industry-relevant, applied laboratory based design and analysis to our students. The program is to serve a constituency consisting of its alumni, employers in the high-technology industry, and the members of our Industrial Advisory Board. Major components of the CET program's mission in the CSET Department are to:

  • educate computer engineering technology students to meet current and future industrial challenges,
  • promote a sense of scholarship, leadership, and professional service among our graduates,
  • enable our students to create, develop, and disseminate knowledge for the applied engineering environment,
  • expose our students to cross-disciplinary educational programs, and
  • provide high tech industry employers with graduates in the computer engineering technology profession, a profession which is increasingly being driven by advances in technology.

Program Educational Objectives

The Program Educational Objectives reflect those attributes a student of the CET program will practice in professional endeavors.

  • Demonstrate technical competency through success in computer engineering technology positions and/or pursuit of engineering or engineering technology graduate studies if desired.
  • Demonstrate competencies in communication and teamwork skills by assuming increasing levels of responsibility and leadership or managerial roles.
  • Develop professionally, pursue continued learning, and practice computer engineering technology in a responsible and ethical manner.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

Graduates of the CET bachelor's degree program are expected to be able to demonstrate:

  1. an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline; (ESLO Inquiry and Analysis)

  2. an ability to design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the engineering design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to the discipline;

  3. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use technical literature; (ESLO Communication)

  4. an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results; (ESLO Quantitative Literacy)

  5. an ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team. (ESLO Teamwork)

Program Student Learning Outcomes Update

On September 18, 2019, the ESET and CET faculty met to review and approve changes to the mission statement, and program student learning outcomes. The ABET ETAC a-k were updated to reflect changes to ABET ETAC 1-5 as of the 2019-2020 cycle. These changes will be discussed in the Fall 2019 Industry Advisory Board.
