Electronics Engineering Technology (EET)

This program is offered as a second year option in Industrial Electronics Technology for persons desiring to enter the electronics manufacturing sector. This program prepares students for work in design, testing, and product development in electrical and electronic systems for today’s industrial, scientific, and commercial facilities.  Persons in this field apply advanced principles and theories of electronics, electrical circuits, and use engineering mathematics and computer programming to assist in design and testing of electronic circuits and equipment.  It provides students with proficiency in topics such as electrical safety, component identification, advanced electrical principles, solid state devices and digital electronics. Students then progress toward a higher level of mathematics for advanced electronic theory and circuits, and computer hardware and software. Engineering technicians usually work under the direction of engineering staff.  This program is designed for an Associate of Applied Science Degree (A.A.S.) in Industrial Electronics Technology with emphasis in Electronics Engineering Technology.
