What is Computer Network and System Administration?
Computer Science BS
Do you enjoy working with computers and numbers? Do you want to contribute to technological development and innovation? In the Michigan Tech Bachelor's in Computer Science program, you'll study computing theory, experimentation, and engineering design. Focus your studies on one of four concentrations: Computer Science, Application, Computer Systems, or Game Development. The bachelor's in computer science is part of the Department of Computer Science.
Do you want to help defend the nation's digital frontier? Every day, hackers and cyber criminals launch new, more sophisticated computer viruses, malware, and scams that threaten the data our society relies on. In the Michigan Tech Bachelor's in Cybersecurity program, you'll choose one of two concentrations: Software Security or System and Network Security. The Bachelor's in Cybersecurity is offered jointly by the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Applied Computing.
Electrical Engineering Technology BS
Professionals who understand mechatronics, robotics, automation and control, instrumentation, and data acquisition are in-demand worldwide. Michigan Tech Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) majors immerse themselves in these topics, top to bottom, through hands-on system design and implementation. The Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering Technology is part of the Department of Applied Computing.
Mechatronics professionals work on the design, manufacture, and maintenance of products and systems that rely on an interrelated system of components. Key to the digital transformation of our regional and national economy, Bachelor's in Mechatronics students study mechanical systems, electrical systems, computing, and control. Mechatronics professionals are in demand worldwide. The Bachelor's in Mechatronics is part of the Department of Applied Computing.
Software Engineering BS
Bachelor's in Software Engineering graduates are involved in the entire process of creating a software program. During your first two years of study, you'll gain a solid foundation in computer science. Then, you'll specialize in software engineering, focusing on the practical, technical, and security sides of software. Software engineering professionals design and develop computer games, business applications, operating systems, network control systems, and middleware, to name just a few of the many career paths. The Bachelor's in Software Engineering is part of the Department of Computer Science.
Computer Engineering BS
A Bachelor's in Computer Engineering is a hybrid of computer science and electrical engineering, combining knowledge from both fields into a single discipline. This ability to work both sides of the hardware/software divide makes the computer engineer uniquely qualified to design, build, and program complete computer systems start to finish. The Bachelor's in Computer Engineering is offered jointly by the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
