Convenience and flexibility are the cornerstones of online education. To meet the growing demand of distance learning, DeVry University, one of the largest degree-granting higher education systems in North America, is adding to its portfolio of online degree programs by offering degree programs currently taught on-site through its online platform. Beginning in July 2008, DeVry will launch its associate degree program in electronics and computer technology (ECT), two bachelor's degree programs in electronics engineering technology (EET) and computer engineering technology (CET) - all online, as well as a new online-only master's degree program in electrical engineering (MSEE).
"These online degree programs are the latest extension of DeVry's long expansion in electronics and engineering education," said Steve Riehs, vice president and general manager of DeVry University Online. "They will maintain the same hands-on emphasis that is the hallmark of DeVry education using state-of-the-art electronics equipment to create a home-based lab. Students now more than ever have the ability to earn a degree from an accredited institution without sacrificing flexibility."
The newest addition to DeVry University's program offerings is the electrical engineering online master's degree program (MSEE). The curriculum focuses on developing solutions to engineering problems in the context of technical, global, environmental and economic situations in addition to technical and managerial leadership in the electrical engineering field. Throughout the program, students apply U.S. and international standards, including those for health and safety, to design solutions to ensure interoperability with other conforming products, processes and services in U.S. and international settings.
The electronics and computer technology (ECT) online associate degree program is based on fundamentals of the technology driving today's information systems, including telecommunications, networks, wireless, computers, controls and instrumentation. Students learn to apply knowledge of analog and digital electronics to describe, utilize, analyze and troubleshoot electronic systems. Upon graduation, students have a broad knowledge base that qualifies them for challenging career-entry positions in the dynamic electronics and computer fields.
The electronics engineering technology (EET) online bachelor's degree program prepares students to join the work force as technical professionals in a variety of industries. The curriculum will teach students to develop electronic and computer systems using appropriate test equipment and to successfully develop a meaningful hardware-based project taking safety, ethical, social, economic and technical constraints into consideration.
The computer engineering technology (CET) online bachelor's degree program prepares graduates for a variety of information technology careers. With DeVry's coursework, students take an applications-oriented approach to designing and implementing software using principles and tools of science, mathematics, engineering and technology.
