Bachelor in Engineering in Information Engineering Technology
The Bachelor of Engineering in Information Engineering Technology Program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, www.abet.org. Accreditation is proof that the quality of an academic program meets the standards of the profession.
The curriculum of the Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) in Information Engineering Technology is designed for those students who intend to launch a career in the design, installation, maintenance, and repair of computing technologies. Coursework in the program is practice-orientated 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 software, network, database, and web designer. Additionally, the graduate will have the ability to work as network manager and administrator, project manager, applications developer, test and integration manager and technologist in business applications. The graduate of this curriculum will be versed in mathematics, physics, computer science, and business fundamentals, giving him/her the fundamental knowledge for further graduate studies in Information Engineering Technology, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Telecommunication Systems.
The program objectives are the following:
- Graduates will be situated in growing careers involving design, development and support of Information Technology Systems.
- Graduates will perform effectively individually and in teams.
- Graduates will have demonstrated involvement in high technical and leadership roles.
- Graduates will have accumulated technical expertise to remain globally competitive.
Completion of this program should result in the following student learning outcomes (ABET ETAC Criteria 2019-2020 Accreditation Cycle):
- An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
- An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes;
- An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
