Students in the Electronic Engineering Technology associate's degree program learn about the fundamentals of circuit design, voltage, semiconductor devices, theory vs. simulation, transistors, microprocessors and more. The program helps prepare students for employment in a variety of fields including consumer electronics, telecommunications, and semiconductors - wherever there is a need for the design, testing, and manufacturing of hardware and software for all things electrical.
The amount of time it takes for a student to complete the program will depend upon the individual student's course load. Students can earn the Associate's Degree in Electronic Engineering Technology (64 credits) as a first step towards earning the Bachelor's Degree in Electronic Engineering Technology (127 credits). Many of the courses taken toward this degree can be also applied toward a related certificate program, allowing students to earn additional credentials as they pursue their degree.
Suggested Program of Study - Total Credits: 64
For students who entered the program in or after September 2009

Students enrolling in this program should purchase an electronic calculator capable of handling logarithmic and trigonometric functions. The use of the calculator will be an integral part of courses 17.213 and 17.214, where proficiency will be developed.
Competency in the use of the calculator will be assumed in all subsequent E.E.T. courses.
Proper approval for a 17.3/4-- course is automatically assumed if all prerequisites are satisfied.
