Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Students in the Electronics Engineering Technology program complete a student design course, Project Management, and laboratory in their senior year. Project Management teaches the design, feasibility, planning and management of projects using current development strategies and software. It also focuses on the business environment and the engineering technologist's position in it. The student's final output is a well-designed, time-phased, hardware and software based senior project to be executed in their last semester.

College Description

Engineering Technology College Description and Special Characteristics

Electronics specialists are at the heart of a rapidly evolving technology. Areas as diverse as manufacturing, entertainment, sales, medicine and space exploration rely heavily on the special skills and talents of electronics professionals. And, global competition in all industries has increased the need for highly productive and adaptive technologists.

Graduates of the electronics engineering technology program will have acquired the capability to develop and refine a design idea - to make the design concept into a real product. Eventually, they may advance to supervisory, managerial and senior technical positions.

Dramatic expansion of computer and communication network use created many opportunities for computer engineering technologists in industry. These specialists have a mix of computer hardware and software skills and apply their expertise in diverse areas such as multiprocessor architecture, parallel computing, real-time systems, embedded systesm local and wide area networks, multimedia and the World Wide Web. They are in great demand for many jobs emerging from the expanding information technology era.

DeVry's curriculum develops knowledge and skills in areas such as software design, operating systems, embedded microprocessors, and peripheral equipment, design of computers and networks, and using applications specific integrated circuits for designing digital systems. Graduates are proficient in creating programs that involve the development, modification and application of software codes and protocols.
