Modern life relies on well-designed computer systems, and these systems need engineers who understand how the hardware and software components work together.
In our program, you will take courses in both electrical engineering technology and computer science. This combination will provide you with crucial insights into how hardware and software components work together in a wide variety of computer systems.
Your courses will cover:
- data structures
- software engineering
- system design, testing and troubleshooting
- advanced circuit analysis
- digital and linear electronics
In addition to hands-on skills and technical training, you'll learn the fundamentals of ethical behavior and leadership in the field of engineering.
Graduates of our program are eligible to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam in Virginia and many other states. These exams are the first step to licensure as a professional engineer.
