Associate of Engineering in Information Engineering Technology
The curriculum for the Associate in Engineering (AEng) in Information Technology is designed for those engineering students who intend to launch a career in the design, installation, maintenance, and repair of computer networks used for critical data entry, transfer, retrieval, and management.
Coursework in the program is practice-oriented and prepares students to work in a variety of computer-intensive environments, such as technical organizations, small or large businesses, product design or manufacturing companies, and data-directed services. The breadth of training in hardware, software, troubleshooting equipment, and other computer tools will enable the graduate to work in a variety of roles in such environments as network designer, network support and administrator, project manager, data applications or computer communications engineer, test and integration manager or technologist in business applications. The graduates of this curriculum could be a computer network specialist, but broadly versed in mathematics, physics, computer science, and business fundamentals.
The program objectives are the following:
- Graduates will be situated in growing entry level careers involving support of Information Technology Systems.
- Graduates will have demonstrated involvement in high technical roles.
Completion of this program should result in the following student outcomes:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
- An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
- An ability to communicate effectively.
- Broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
- A knowledge of contemporary issues.
- An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
