The mission of the Computer Systems Engineering Technology (CSET) Department is to prepare students for productive engineering careers in the fields of computer engineering, embedded systems engineering, and software engineering. Our graduates are in high demand in industry because employers recognize that our students come prepared to be immediately productive as a member of their organization. This is one of the reasons our employment rates for all CSET programs are over 90%, with most students having job offers months before graduation.
Our department has a “family” atmosphere where students and faculty work collaboratively for students to achieve their educational goals. We believe strongly in the hands-on education learning model that Oregon Tech is famous for. Most CSET courses have a lab component built into the course. In addition, all of the bachelor programs in the CSET department have two project sequences: Junior Projects – a three-term team based project and Senior Projects – a three-term individual project.
