Overview

The Electronics Engineering Technology program (EET) uses classroom and laboratory experiences to provide students with applied technical skills such as building, testing, troubleshooting, and repairing applied electronic circuits and equipment. Students accumulate a variety of academic and experiential knowledge, which will prepare them for careers with a variety of manufacturing industries.

PROGRAM ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS
• ENG 155 or equivalent test scores
• MAT 101 or equivalent test scores

In the Real World

Electronics engineering technicians help engineers design and develop computers, communications equipment, medical monitoring devices, navigational equipment, and other electrical and electronic equipment. They often work in product evaluation and testing, using measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust, test, and repair equipment. They are also involved in the manufacture and deployment of equipment for automation. They also apply electrical and electronic theory and related knowledge, usually under the direction of engineering staff, to design, build, repair, calibrate, and modify electrical components, circuitry, and controls in application to manufacturing processes and machinery.
