The objective of the Computer Engineering Technology (CET) Program at Northeastern University is to prepare graduates with the skills necessary to enter careers in the design, application, development, implementation, and support of computer systems. The course of study enables our graduates to pursue a successful engineering career and contribute decisively to the application, improvement, and development of technology by demonstrating their ability to:
- Address and solve complex and broadly defined engineering problems related to their discipline and field of specialization
- Work as team members, show leadership, and communicate technical concepts and ideas effectively
- Manifest a high level of professional integrity, and make ethical decisions that will have a positive impact on the organization and society
- Embrace and practice lifelong learning, continue personal growth, and professional self-improvement
Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology in Computer Engineering Technology graduates design and use computer system hardware and software, accomplish network design, and are involved in the deployment of computer systems for companies of all sizes and disciplines. Core and foundation courses allow students the opportunity to think critically and gain insights into disciplines other than their particular field of study. Requirements include learning the use of traditional and emerging technologies to accomplish tasks effectively and using appropriate mathematical, physics, and computing techniques and concepts to obtain solutions to problems.
The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology in Computer Engineering Technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc.
