Electronics Engineering Technology

Current number of students enrolled in EET program – 119

This accredited program is designed to prepare graduates for both technological and managerial responsibilities in industry. The computer and electronics engineering technologist can provide direct technical assistance to scientists and engineers.

Hands-on education coupled with strong analysis and design sets apart the Electronics Engineering Technology program. Graduates gain skills to analyze, design, apply, and troubleshoot systems with electronic, digital, analog, microcontroller, software, and mechanical components. The combination of practical and theoretical education lead to graduates with agile technical skills throughout a wide range of applications.

Students can choose from a variety of courses from the Technology Option. Some options will develop computer programming, engineering and architecture skills. Others will focus on developing materials, thermodynamic, fluidics and mechanical skills. Both allow a good fit for the variety of careers for the engineering technologist.
