The computer engineering technology program will provide you with the cutting-edge industry knowledge and hands-on skills necessary to secure a career as an applied engineer capable of installing, designing, supporting, and maintaining computer systems and networks. This is an active, technically oriented program with a focus on computer system hardware and network infrastructure, as well as software development and operating systems. We’ve designed these degrees to prepare you for professional examinations leading to certifications such as the CompTIA A+ and Network+, Microsoft Certified System Administrator (MCSA), Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE), and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA).
A laptop computer is required for students entering the computer engineering technology program. The college will provide a list of appropriate laptops and wireless modem cards to all students who have been accepted to attend Alfred State. Some courses may require specialized tools and/or electronic components.
Program educational objectives were established with the assistance of the Industrial Advisory Committee and are reviewed periodically. The BS in computer engineering technology program produces graduates who:
Employment and continuing education rate of 83 percent – 67 percent are employed; 16 percent continued their education.
Computer Engineering Technology (BS) - Enrollment - 33; Graduates - 7
Required: Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2/ Trigonometry, SAT and/or ACT scores with a recommended combined reading/writing and math SAT score of 1080 or a composite ACT score of 21.
