Career and Program Description

Electronic Engineering Technology (EET) is concerned with the theory and practice of applied electronics engineering. Emphasis is placed on the practical application of engineering knowledge. To apply electronics engineering knowledge requires a thorough background in mathematics and science. EET graduates possess a combination of theoretical and practical understanding and require minimal on-the-job training to become productive.

Graduates of an Associate of Applied Science Degree program in EET are called electronic engineering technicians and find employment in circuits and systems testing, product development, prototype construction and testing, circuit and systems medication, systems operation and manufacturing. EET graduates are expected to have good communication skills and be capable of creative problem solving, working independently and in teams. They should have extensive knowledge of both the hardware and software of electronic systems.

Employers of EET engineering technicians include research and development laboratories, electronic equipment manufacturers, public utilities, colleges and universities, government agencies, medical laboratories and hospitals, electronic equipment distributors, semiconductor manufacturers and manufacturing and processing industries that use electronic control equipment and others.

Students can complete the EET degree and/or the EET options in Biomedical Engineering Technology, Wireless and Data Communications, Renewable Energy Systems, and Mechatronics/Automation/Robotics Engineering Technology. The EET department also offers two certificates - Renewable Energy Systems and Electronics Engineering Technology.
