Computer Engineering Technology Concentration

Effective March 15, 2020, new students are no longer being accepted into this concentration, however similar options are available. Contact Gerry Willis at gtm23@drexel.edu or 215-895-6253 for additional information.

The Computer Engineering Technology concentration provides in-depth knowledge of hardware and software design, development, and maintenance. Through our solid, laboratory-centric curriculum, students gain a strong background in software and hardware development with programming languages and HDLs currently used in industry. In addition, students learn state-of-the-art techniques for developing robust technological solutions, including network- and web-based applications and Internet of Things (IoT) considerations.

The focus of the curriculum is on embedded systems design and development. From low-level, gate-based design to the use of high-end microprocessors and current bus standards, students gain a thorough architectural understanding of computer systems. The curriculum includes in-depth design and analysis of combinational logic, sequential logic and state machines, microcontroller systems, microprocessor systems, and state-of-the-art computer technology.
