Degree Progress

Students must complete the following requirements within one calendar year of declaring the major. Some students may need to take courses during Summer Session to meet these requirements. At the end of the year, students who have not met the requirements must either declare another major or meet with an Academic Advisor to determine if the student's performance in the courses merits an additional semester to complete.

First-Time Freshmen: A grade "C" or better must be achieved in MATH 111 and 113, and PHYS 100A within one calendar year.

Transfer Students: A grade "C" or better must be achieved in MATH 122 and PHYS 100A & B within one calendar year.

Fieldwork Requirements

Fieldwork experience is required for the BS in Computer Engineering Technology, consisting of no less than three months full-time (40 hours/week) (or equivalent part-time) of employment in an approved industry or governmental agency. The student must hold a position equivalent to a technician or higher which affords the opportunity to exercise responsibility usually given to those who have completed two years of college. The fieldwork must be completed prior to graduation, be certified and approved by the faculty of the Department.
