The electronics engineering technology program provides the study of theory and practice in all areas of electronics using modern electronic and microprocessor laboratories. Students will become familiar with all areas of electronics, including analog and digital integrated circuits, instrumentation, discrete power devices, electronic communications and control devices. This hardware oriented program provides students with knowledge of currently established design and laboratory techniques. The laboratory facilities will be supplemented by the use of video resources, microprocessor trainers, and the use of computers to solve problems and design analog and digital circuits.
The bachelor’s degree in electronics engineering technology provides technical preparation with an emphasis on laboratory and problem-solving skills which will help in preparing for employment in all areas of electronics, including microprocessor-based systems, digital and analog communications, digital and analog control, electrical power, microwave systems, and industrial control and automation. Many of the department's alumni hold technical and managerial positions nationwide. Graduates from the program utilize effective communication techniques and are key members of multidisciplinary professional teams. Electronics engineering technology graduates engage in life-long learning activities and are employed in leading corporations and some attend graduate school. The program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (TAC/ABET).
