Overview

Electronics Engineering Technology is a course of study that prepares the students to apply basic engineering principles and technical skills to become technicians who design, build, install, test, troubleshoot, repair, and modify developmental and production electronics components, equipment, and systems such as industrial/computer controls, manufacturing systems, communication systems, and power electronic systems. The curriculum includes instruction in mathematics, basic electricity, solid-state fundamentals, digital concepts, and microprocessors or programmable logic controllers.

 

 Accreditation

This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

Career Outline

Graduates should qualify for employment as engineering assistants or electronic technicians
with job titles such as electronics engineering technician, field service technician, instrumentation technician, maintenance technician, electronic tester, electronic systems integrator, bench technician, and production control technician.

Graduates may elect to continue their education toward a bachelor’s degree.  Many universities, including UNC Charlotte, accept graduates of the program as juniors in the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET) program.

 

 

Program Educational Objectives

The Electronics Engineering Technology program aims to produce graduates who will:

 

  1. Value lifelong learning.
  2. Be able to communicate effectively.
  3. Be able to function in a professional environment.
  4. Have high standards of professional ethics.
