Computer Engineering Technology BS


The computer engineering technology program is designed for the student who wishes to pursue a career as a computing professional and who desires a challenging curriculum which offers a wholistic approach to computing. Shawnee State’s program maintains a balance between computer software and hardware by blending the most critical courses from computer science with those from electrical engineering technology.

The program also balances computing theory with application by offering rigorous courses, and adding to each of these courses an applied lab component. These labs encourage the application of theoretical knowledge to real-world projects which involve software applications, microprocessor-based systems, and computer networks.

The overall breadth and depth of the program prepares graduates to apply computing-based solutions to problems in industry, business, and medicine. In addition, their skills help them expand the frontiers of society by enabling those in the arts and sciences to attain greater levels of achievement in science, literature, art, music, and philosophy through appropriately applied computing technologies.

Math Placement

The co-requisite course for ETEM 1110 Electrical Fundamentals 1 (DC) is MATH 1200 College Algebra; however, the beginning math requirement for this program is MATH 1250.  The course sequence may vary depending on math placement. A sample freshmen course sequence, based on placement in MATH1250, is as follows:

  Fall Term Spring Term
  ETEM 1110  Electrical Fundamentals 1 (DC) ETEM1111  Electrical Fundamentals 2 (AC)
  MATH 1250 Trigonometry ETEM 1216  Electronics
  ENGL 1101 or ENGL 1102  Discourse & Composition ETEC 1101  Structured Programming
  ETCO 1120  Intro to STEM Programming ETEC 1302  Computing Systems
  GEP Fine Arts Elective ENGL 1105 Comp and Argumentation
  UNIV 1100 Freshman Year Experience  


Students that don’t meet the requirements for MATH1250 should work with the Engineering Technology department and/or their academic advisor to develop an alternate schedule.

Computer Requirement

All students in the B.S. in Computer Engineering Technology, B.S. in Digital Simulation and Gaming Engineering Technology, and A.A.S. in Electromechanical Engineering Technology degree programs are required to purchase a laptop computer for use in class.

Many vendors offer academic discounts to university students.  See the respective vendors’ websites for more information on how to take advantage of these discounts.
