Electronics Engineering Technology

The electronics engineering technology (EET) curriculum provides instruction in the fundamentals of modern electronics theory, with emphasis on the application of theoretical principles to actual electronic devices, circuits and systems. Graduates of the electronics engineering technology program are prepared to function in these positions:

Research and Development Technologist - engages in the development, building and testing of new equipment in the areas of digital electronics, communication electronics and microelectronics.

Process Control Technologist - supervises the operation of automatic control equipment for industrial processes.

Field Engineering Specialist - installs, tests and maintains equipment such as data processing machines and other electronic systems.

High Frequency Technologist - maintains and/or operates radar, sonar and other warning detection and navigation devices.

Accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Program Educational Objectives:

Within two to five years of graduation, the Electronics Engineering Technology graduates will be able to:

Objective 1
Demonstrate competency in identifying and analyzing technical problems, problem solving, design of systems and application of modern tools.
Objective 2
Advance through their professional career by demonstrating their ability to function in multidisciplinary teams and participate in ongoing professional development.
Objective 3
Express themselves effectively in both oral and written communication, understand social responsibilities, appreciate diversity, commit to continuous improvement and maintain professional competency through life-long learning.

EET Expected Student Outcomes:

The EET program must demonstrate that the graduates have:

  1. an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
  2. an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
  3. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  4. an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
  5. an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
