Grantham offers this education in a way that is convenient for and accessible to those who cannot pursue higher education in a traditional manner.
Computer Engineering Technology:
The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology (BS-CET) program prepares students to design and develop digital systems, including the associated software. The curriculum includes electronics and computer engineering technology courses, as well as computer science courses. Computer science components include programming and computer network courses. Electronics and computer engineering technology components include electronics theory, circuit design, microprocessor design, and advanced topics in computer engineering. Students learn theory and techniques that allow them to design and evaluate both hardware and software systems and make recommendations concerning their use and modification.
Note: A student should be prepared to enter MA105 – College Algebra. If this is not the case, developmental math is available. Also, it is expected that a student is computer literate and is able to install programs, copy files from a disk to the hard drive, move files within directories, and use Word and Excel at a basic level. A student who is in need of basic computer skills should take CS101 at the beginning of the program.
