industries become more automated and society becomes more
dependent on electronic data communication, the demand
increases for graduates with technical knowledge in electronics
and computers. Bowling Green State University provides
this knowledge through a progressive electronics and computer
and computer technology is a comprehensive study of diverse
areas such as computer hardware and interfacing; digital
communication and networking; computer-based instrumentation,
data acquisition and process control. Emphasis is placed
on the practical application of physics, mathematics and
computer science to the study of electronics and computer
technology. This knowledge is blended with a core study
of industry, business and liberal education to develop
the whole person as well as flexibility for career responsibilities
and advancement. An important component of this technology
curriculum is a cooperative education program that integrates
students' industrial employment with classroom academics.
