ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY - ELECTRONIC
A graduate of Electronic Engineering Technology will be involved with applications engineering. He or she will be involved in a wide range of activities such as design, troubleshooting, repair and maintenance of communications systems, computer circuits, telemetry, numerical controls, industrial electronics, automation, fiber optics, and laser technology. They may also be involved with design and development, customer service, purchasing, quality control, technical sales, and technical writing.
Although most electronic engineering technicians find jobs in manufacturing industries and service industries, they may also work for governmental agencies or in research and development activities. Jobs may be situated in the production shop, the design engineering offices, research laboratories, or in the field traveling to on-site locations or in technical sales.
The individual that has an interest in knowing how things work, determining how things may work better, and who has an interest in problem solving may find Electronic Engineering Technology an appropriate career choice. The individual should also have an interest in and aptitude for mathematics and science.
The student in Electronic Engineering Technology will study electronics circuits, integrated circuits, digital electronics, microcontrollers, AD/DC drives, industrial electronics, and instrumentation. In addition, this program is transferable to several institutions in Ohio that have B.S. degrees in Engineering Technology.
The Associate of Applied Science degree is awarded for the completion of this program.
