Associate of Applied Science

Curriculum Code 6222

The Computer Engineering Technology – Computer Applications Integration Specialist major provides graduates with the skills necessary to design and implement software and hardware interfaces and networking of equipment with computers, computing devices and communication systems for a variety of industrial sectors including health care, law enforcement, manufacturing, logistics/transportation and other sectors. Graduates will be proficient in the design, application, installation, operations, and maintenance of computer, networks, and other digital devices and associated equipment. Along with a general electronics background, students are given comprehensive information and training in installation, networking and interfacing of industry-specific equipment for the purpose of optimizing communication. Through proper selection of the two industry-specific directed study and capstone courses, students will specialize in the equipment found in their chosen specific industry sector, providing them the experience necessary to enter the job market with confidence. This program articulates to Akron University toward a three-plus-one Bachelor’s degree in Computing Applications Specialist.
