College of Technology - Department of Engineering
As industries become more automated and society becomes more dependent on electronic data communication, the demand increases for professionals who can make informed decisions based on technical knowledge and experience. That is why the ECT program at Bowling Green State University has such a progressive curriculum.
Electronics and Computer Technology is a comprehensive study of diverse areas such as: Computer Hardware and Interfacing, Computer-Based Instrumentation and Process Control, Digital Communication and Networking, and Electric Motors and Controls
When you study at BGSU you will have hands-on opportunities to learn the working of real world data communication and control systems. Students can even participate in activities related to the Electric Vehicle Institute which is involved in designing and testing of electric motors, electronic controllers and instrumentation systems. Students can also be involved in the student section of The Instrumentation Systems and Automation Society (ISA).
ECT graduates go on to careers such as Electrical Engineers, Network Engineers, Project Managers, EMS/SCADA Analysts, Research Associates, Engineering Technicians, Manufacturing Superintendents, Senior Sales Engineers, Automation Analysts and Electronic Design Engineers.
