Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology, B.S.

Engineering Technology is the nationally accepted terminology for education programs designed to prepare engineering technologists and engineering technicians. Engineering technology is that part of the technological field which requires application of scientific and engineering knowledge and methods combined with technical skills in support of engineering activities. It lies within the occupational spectrum between the craftsman and the engineer. View our curriculum and our undergraduate catalog.

The objectives of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology program are satisfied by having our students take courses in electrical and computer engineering technology, computer science, liberal arts, humanities, mathematics, and science followed by a  senior capstone seminar focused on a design project in an area such as fabrication, computerized control, or Internet technology. The sequences established are meant to provide both depth and breadth in the major areas of study, while also providing a degree of flexibility through a choice of elective courses to enable students to specialize in areas of particular interest.

Within this general direction and the mission of the college as well, the faculty have determined Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) that intend to create versatile engineering technologists who:

  • are successful in their careers through employment in engineering technology or related fields
  • engage in life-long learning and professional development through graduate studies and active participation in professional organizations.
  • serve their communities, whether locally, nationally, or globally

To meet these objectives, the program is designed so that at the time of graduation students must have:

  • an appropriate mastery of the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of their disciplines. 
  • an ability to apply current knowledge and adapt to emerging applications of mathematics, science (i.e. physical sciences, such as physics or chemistry at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry), engineering, and technology through the ability to utilize statistics/probability, transform methods, discrete mathematics, or applied differential equations in support of electrical/electronic(s) and computer systems. 
  • an ability to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments, and apply experimental results to improve processes
  • an ability to apply creativity in the design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to program educational objectives. In particular, the ability to analyze, design, and implement hardware and software computer systems, control systems, instrumentation systems, communications systems, computer systems, or power systems. 
  • an ability to function effectively on teams
  • an ability to identify, analyze and solve technical problems. In particular, the application of electric circuits, computer programming, associated software applications, analog and digital electronics, microcomputers, operating systems, and local area networks to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of systems. 
  • an ability to communicate effectively
  • a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in lifelong learning
  • an ability to understand professional, ethical and social responsibilities
  • a respect for diversity and a knowledge of contemporary professional, societal and global Issues
  • a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement, through techniques such as project management methodologies to systems

YOUR FUTURE

Graduates of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology programs often hold positions as electrical, computer, and electronics technologists in the area of testing, service, maintenance, sales and marketing, and research assistant. The primary mission of the program at NYIT is to create versatile engineering technologists who engage in life-long learning and professional development with the ability: to apply creativity in the design of systems, components, or processes; to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments and apply results; and to adapt to emerging applications of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology in order to solve problems. A commitment to quality and social responsibility is the key to understanding the impact of their work at the local and global level.
