Computer Engineering Technology - CET1 Technical Certificate of Credit

Campus Locations: Online

The Computer Engineering Technology Fundamentals Technical Certificate of Credit (TCC) provides students with an opportunity to exit the Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology program with the basic technical skills required to enter the computer engineering technology field through a short-term certificate program. The courses in the Computer Engineering Technology TCC are embedded within the Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology A.A.S. Degree program. The completion of this certificate shows a current employer or prospective employer that progress has been made in the program and that basic skills have been achieved. The Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology Technical Certificates of Credit programs are planned sequences of carefully developed college-level courses designed to prepare students to work in the field of electronics and computer engineering technology. The programs emphasize the application of scientific, mathematics, and engineering knowledge and methods combined with technical skills in support of engineering activities.
