Computer Engineering Technology Degree Program

Technology has become a part of our everyday lives. We use it for downloading music, playing games, getting information, communicating, banking, and more. At DeVry University, you can earn a bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering Technology (CET) at one of our campus locations, and you'll learn how to design and implement the software and hardware that makes these technological advancements possible. In addition you have the option of earning your degree online with our bachelor's degree in Engineering Technology-Computers (ET-C). Whether you decide to enroll online or on campus, qualified practitioner faculty will teach your classes, and you'll have regular opportunities for collaboration and interaction with classmates. Upon graduation, you'll have the skills to create advanced electronics like iPods®, cell phones, defense-related equipment, and work in research, manufacturing, medical, communications, security, and consumer products markets.

At DeVry University, you have the option of taking all or some* of your Computer Engineering courses online. Whether online or on campus, qualified practitioner faculty will teach your classes, and you'll have regular opportunities for collaboration and interaction with classmates.

Computer Engineering Technology Courses


Focusing on applying concepts and skills to real-world situations, DeVry's CET curriculum may include these career-enhancing courses:

  • Programming Environments and Java with Lab – This Computer Engineering course introduces alternate programming environments such as command-line-oriented UNIX or Linux and Eclipse IDE. Topics include the Java programming language and advanced programming concepts such as exception handling and the event-driven model for graphical user interfaces.
  • Microprocessor Architecture – This course introduces internal architecture of the microprocessor – the basic building block of current electronic systems. Students use assembly language and/or high-level language to program the microprocessor and develop simple algorithms.
  • Data Communications and Networking – This CET course introduces principles of data communications, including noise effects, multiplexing, and transmission methods, as well as protocols, architecture, and performance analysis of local and wide area networks.
  • Operating Systems – Students in this Computer Engineering course explore basic operating system concepts such as process states and synchronization, multiprocessing, multiprogramming, processor scheduling, resource management, static and dynamic relocation, virtual memory, logical and physical input/output, device allocation, disk scheduling, and file management. Also introduced are techniques required to develop device drivers.
  • Database System Design – This course introduces structured query language (SQL) for implementing and accessing a relational database. Also covered is how to embed SQL into a high-level language such as C++ or Java.
