B.S. in Engineering Technology: Curriculum

The B.S. in Engineering Technology consists of 187.5 credits. As a student enrolled in this program, you will be required to take 71.5 credits of general education courses in subject areas including mathematics, the sciences, and liberal arts, in addition to a number of free elective credits.

During your sophomore year, you will choose one of the four available concentrations - electrical, mechanical, biomedical, or industrial engineering technology. These concentrations consist of core fundamental courses, technical electives, free electives, and a three-term senior design project reflecting industrial practices. All four concentrations are available as a part time option to complete in the evening.

For course descriptions and student outcomes, please see the Drexel University Course Catalog.

Concentration 5: Computer Engineering Technology

The Computer Engineering Technology Concentration provides in-depth knowledge of hardware and software design, development, and maintenance. The curriculum is based on a solid foundation with intensive classroom and laboratory experiences. Students will gain a strong background in cutting-edge development with programming languages currently used in industry. In addition, students will learn industry standard approaches to application software development as well as state-of-the-art problem-solving techniques for developing applications code and firmware including networking / web operations.

The hardware focus of the curriculum is on digital systems design and development. From low-level gate design to high-end microprocessors and current bus standards, students gain an architectural understanding of computer systems. The curriculum includes in-depth design and analysis of combinational logic, sequential logic and state machines, microcontroller systems, microprocessor systems, and state-of-the-art computer technology.
