Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology

Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree at Valencia College will prepare students for an advanced career in electrical engineering or computer engineering.

Our program was developed in partnership with Central Florida High-Tech and Engineering Industries and incorporates the same state-of-the-art equipment found in the research and development departments of major companies. This better prepares students to meet both industry demands and employer expectations by the time they graduate. And with small class sizes, they'll get the same individual instruction and support that they've come to expect from Valencia College.

All courses are held on West Campus.

Valencia College is the only school in Central Florida to offer a bachelor's degree in electrical and computer engineering technology.

Concentrations

  • Computer Systems
  • Electrical/Electronic Systems
