An Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology degree prepares the student for a wide variety of careers, such as system designer, system verification engineer, networks and telecommunications specialist, hardware or software engineer, system analyst, clinical engineer, and biomedical technician. Students may concentrate their studies in computer systems, communications, or biomedical electronics. However, graduates do not necessarily take jobs within their concentrations.
