Computer Engineering Technology Program (BCOT)

**Please note, the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology program is no longer accepting new students. This information remains as a reference for students currently enrolled in the program.***

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Mission of the Program

The program offers students a mathematically-based engineering technology education that provides the technical knowledge, problem solving-skills and hands-on experience needed for them to grow as intellectually inquisitive individuals and critically involved members of our society with a lifelong commitment to continued leaning. The Computer Engineering Technology baccalaureate (BCOT) degree program is a comprehensive four year program of study that is rooted in Wentworth's rich tradition of project-based and experiential learning. The curriculum is rigorous and well balanced in the presentation of theory and problem solving techniques. The objective of coursework is to furnish students with the analytical and technical skills required for successful professional practice in the computer hardware related industries. The computer program also strives to provide its graduates with solid foundation for lifelong professional development, to cultivate students' abilities to readily adapt to workplace changes, to communicate proficiently and to work effectively in a team environment.

FAA Technical Operations-Collegiate Training Initiative (AT-CTI)
