Computer Engineering Technology
The Computer Engineering Technology program will prepare you for higher education in computer science and engineering as well as prepare you for entry-level employment in networking, information, and computer technology-related jobs in the public and private sectors.
Students who pursue this program will have a strong foundation in hardware, software, networks, and embedded systems as well as a solid background in general education courses in communications, mathematics, and social science. The curriculum will familiarize student with the theory and application of computer technology while offering an intensive, hands-on experience working with networks, hardware, and software.
What certifications can you get with the program?
During the course of the Computer Engineering Technology program you will cover the material to prepare you for the A+ CompTIA certificate. In addition to the A+ certificate you will undergo Cisco Networking Academy training in KCC’s new state of the art networking lab and have opportunities to earn Cisco’s CCNA Routing and Switching certifications.
What is taught in the program?
Your studies will include advanced C++ coding and software application development, integrated circuit development, hardware development, and embedded systems (robotics) programming and design. You will become qualified to design, build, and maintain network infrastructures.
What do I do when I graduate?
The Computer Engineering Technology AAS degree is designed for students who would like to acquire technical training in information system support and transfer to the baccalaureate degree program in computer engineering technology at Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT), with which KCC has an articulation agreement. Reverse transfer is part of this agreement. Students who graduate with this AAS degree will have most of their first two years of lower-division course work completed for OIT.
