The Electronic Engineering Technology Program concentrates on the use of principles and theories of science, engineering and mathematics to solve technical problems in research and development, manufacturing, sales, construction and maintenance. Through the use of modern electronic laboratories, the student will become familiar with the areas of electronics, including circuit analysis, analog and digital integrated circuits, discrete semiconductor devices, electronic communications and linear operational amplifier circuits. The student will also become familiar with Objected Oriented C++ programming and embedded controllers using assembly language programming.
This program provides students with knowledge of currently established design and laboratory techniques.
The U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Statistics (BLS) reports that one of the top 10 best paying jobs for individuals with an associate degree is the Engineering Technician, with positive job growth at 5% expected through 2018.
In addition to the general admission requirements, Electronics Engineering Technology applicants should be aware of the following criteria:
The educational objectives of the Electronic Engineering Technology Associate Degree Program are to provide students with:
- A broad understanding of fundamental engineering knowledge and technical skills to analyze and solve complex technical problems in the electronics industry.
- Proficiency in digital and analog circuit analysis, circuit design and laboratory techniques used in the electronics industry.
- Effective oral and written communications skills at a level of effectiveness expected in industry employees
- An ability to ethically and professionally perform in business and society including a respect for diversity and a need to contribute to the community.
- The skills needed to obtain competitively compensated entry-level positions and/or pursue admissions into programs of advanced study and/or lifelong learning.
Student Outcomes: At the completion of the degree in Electronic Engineering Technology, graduates must demonstrate that they will be able to:
- Utilize mathematics, physics and engineering knowledge to solve technical problems.
- Apply analog and digital circuit design techniques to the building, testing, and maintenance of electrical/ electronic circuits.
- Apply microcontrollers to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic circuits.
- Analyze and interpret data to utilize for on- going research or as part of a multi-step problem.
- Demonstrate a respect for diversity and knowledge of contemporary professional, societal, and global issues.
- Communicate effectively in written and oral formats.
- Function effectively on teams.
- Understand professional, ethical, and social responsibilities.
- Demonstrate a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
In addition, the graduate will be able to demonstrate competency in the general education outcomes.
