Academic Programs

(065) Associate in Applied Science

Graduates of the Electronic Engineering Technology (EET) program are prepared to enter the work force as engineering technicians, field service engineers, and application engineers or to move into supervisory positions. Graduates may continue their education at many colleges and universities and earn an advanced degree. The EET program provides students with the technical knowledge and skills to compete in the constantly changing field of electronics. Students receive both theory and "hands-on" training in the areas of communications, computers, consumer and industrial electronics, instrumentation and microprocessors. The program content is constantly updated so that students stay current and competitive in today's market place.

Work and Employment

Graduates of this program are prepared to work in research, electronic layout, instrumentation, design, field service, communications and service laboratories. Graduates may supervise technicians in the assembly, installation, repair, maintenance, calibration, and modification of electronic circuitry and systems.

Special Considerations

Workers usually have the following skills and aptitudes: the ability to do precise and detailed work, use good eye-hand coordination, notice and compare differences in objects, have mathematical and mechanical aptitudes, are analytic, curious and creative.
