Electronic Engineering Technology encompasses the study of electronic engineering technologies. Students desiring a broad-based education or who desire to possibly pursue a bachelor's degree in Electronic Engineering Technology should consider enrolling in the Electronic Engineering Technology program.

Electronic engineering technicians use state-of-the-art measuring and diagnostic equipment. While engineering principles, mathematics, and physics provide a theoretical base, practical (hands-on) experience is also important. Technicians will learn to design, build, and troubleshoot electronic circuits on their own. Students begin by analyzing basic series and parallel DC and AC circuits and progress through amplifiers and integrated circuits. The program also includes digital logic, microprocessor studies, and programmable logic controllers. These devices monitor and control various processes automatically. The aim of the curriculum is to teach hardware and software programming design and implementation of this equipment, as well as the development of software needed for programming it.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon completion, the student will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate the ability to employ effective written, oral and visual communication in a technical environment by collecting, analyzing, and summarizing information and trends.
  2. Demonstrate an appreciation of the benefits that cultural diversity brings to a team.
  3. Write programs to operate sophisticated machinery.
  4. Diagnose problems and provide correct, effective solutions.
  5. Apply their growing set of skills to creatively solve technical problems.
