Engineering Technology – Computer/Electronic Technology

Program Advisor: Gary Bradway 413-236-4624

The Computer/Electronic Technology option in the Engineering Technology degree program provides the student with a unique blend of courses in electronics and computer hardware, software, and programming.

It is intended to provide a broad range of career opportunities including designing, installing, maintaining, and operating computer systems as well as training as an industrial electronics technician. Students may become CISCO certified in this program. Those students should contact the Program Advisor.
With proper preparation in mathematics and physics, the student can transfer to a college or university offering a baccalaureate degree in engineering technology.
