BS - Industrial Technology, Concentration in Computer Electronics and Network Technology

The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology with a concentration in Electronics and Computer Technology is designed to prepare students for technical and management careers in business and industry. Computer Electronics and Network Technology prepares you for a career in the networking, communications, electronics, and computer fields. You will gain knowledge, skills, and practical experiences in networking, analog systems, digital systems, telecommunications, control of electronic industrial processes, instrumentation and automation, electronics manufacturing, and microprocessor-based systems design.

This dynamic and changing field applies a broad preparation in industrial practices, electronic test methods and equipment as well as computer and networking hardware and software to solving problems in the networking, communications, electronics, and computer industries. You will apply skills in industrial management, networking and telecommunications, automation technology; microprocessor systems; control systems; analog and digital systems; and computer simulation processes to design, analyze, and solve problems in the manufacturing and implementation of electronic circuits and systems. Graduates of the BSIT in Computer Electronics and Network Technology will be able to:

1. Use a broad understanding of network and communications technologies to solve challenges in wireless networking and communications.

2. Use current programming languages and methods to solve problems in business and industry.

3. Solve network and electronic systems problems in analytical and creative ways.

4. Apply analog and digital communication techniques to a variety of problems in industry.

5. Use computer-aided design and simulation for the development of electronic systems, printed circuit boards, and integrated circuits.

6. Develop and implement software systems for control of industrial processes in electronics and communications.

7. Integrate the processes of instrumentation and automation in the electronics industry.

8. Use skills and knowledge in the control of electronics and networking manufacturing processes, production scheduling and testing.

9. Apply networking and telecommunications theory and management.

10. Design and analyze electronic circuits and systems.
