The Electronics Engineering Technology curriculum prepares individuals to become technicians
who design, build, install, test, troubleshoot, repair, and modify development and
production electronic components, equipment, and systems such as industrial/computer
controls, manufacturing systems, communication systems, and power electronic systems.
A broad-based core of courses including basic electricity, solid-state fundamentals,
digital concepts, and microprocessors ensures the student will develop the skills
necessary to perform entry-level tasks. Emphasis is placed on developing the student’s
ability to analyze and troubleshoot electronic systems.
Special emphasis is placed on computer literacy, computer-aided design (CAD), data
communications, electronic communications systems (telecommunications), as well as
industrial controls (Programmable Logic Controller), microprocessor systems, and industrial
control transducers. Online (Internet) experience is also an integral part of the
EET program as much of the coursework provides hands-on laboratory experiments that
often include accessing the web.
Graduates should qualify for employment as engineering assistants or electronic technicians
with job titles such as electronics engineering technician, field service technician,
maintenance technician, electronic tester, electronic systems integrator, bench technician,
or production control technician.
Upon completion of this program, students will be able to:
