Undergraduate Program: Computer Engineering Technology
Computer engineering technology is an integral part of our high-tech economy. Computer systems, microcontrollers and microprocessors are found everywhere we look-in the process control industry, manufacturing facilities, telecommunication systems and devices, power generation and transmission utilities, automotive industry, aerospace industry, medical equipment, and home appliances.
The ongoing advances in computer engineering technology continue to revolutionize our world. The heavy reliance on computer systems is creating a growing need for computer engineering technologists to design, develop, implement and integrate modern computer applications.
The Bachelor of Science in computer engineering technology at California University of Pennsylvania combines theoretical and practical concepts in electrical engineering technology, computer science, digital electronics, mathematics, natural science and general education courses.
Our program emphasizes both hardware engineering technology and software engineering technology. As a student, you'll be prepared for a technically oriented career involving hardware and software technologies with an emphasis on embedded systems design using a hands-on approach.
By integrating teamwork and leadership skills in a blend of theoretical and applied competencies, this degree prepares you for changing technologies and lifelong learning. You'll also learn to take personal responsibility, understand local, national and global issues related to the field, and apply the highest professional and ethical standards to your activities in computer systems.

Nigel Wright (Computer Engineering Technology ‘07) took advantage of everything Cal U had to offer. During his four years on campus, he accepted various work-study jobs and joined the Engineering Technology Club so he could share ideas with fellow students. He eventually took internships working as both a programmer and an electrical engineer. He is currently employed as an embedded software engineer for Renal Solutions, where he designs control software for use in kidney dialysis machines.
