Modern life relies on well-designed computer systems. Computer engineers must understand how the hardware and software components work together.

In this online program, you will take courses in both electrical engineering technology and computer science. This combination provides crucial insights into how hardware and software components work together in a variety of computer systems. Your courses will cover:

  • programming
  • data structures
  • software engineering
  • system design, testing and troubleshooting
  • advanced circuit analysis
  • digital and linear electronics

You'll also learn fundamentals of ethical behavior and leadership in the engineering field. Graduates are eligible to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam in Virginia and many other states. This exam is the first step to licensure as a professional engineer.

When you graduate, you will earn a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology with a major in Electrical Engineering Technology.

ODU's Electrical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET,, under the General Criteria and the Electrical/Electronic(s) Engineering Technology Program Criteria.
