Electronics Engineering Technology

Electronic Engineering Technology is a degree concentration under the Engineering Technology degree at ETSU.  The program combines scientific and engineering knowledge and methods into technical classes to provide students the knowledge base to support engineering activities.

An electronic engineering technologist is a person who is knowledgeable in electronics theory and design and who understands state-of-the-art practices related to digital and analog circuits and systems, controls/ automation, robotics, instrumentation, and communications.  The EET program at ETSU requires and extensive lab component that gives students experience to start immediately in an industrial or manufacturing setting.  Our students participate in labs that provide exposure to 208VAC 3 phase power, industrial motor control, digital signal processors, instrumentation, process control, communications and robotics as well as labs on the fundamental concepts of electronics. 

The program prepares students for entry into the technical workforce. In particular, the department strives to ensure that its graduates have an ability to:

  • Apply knowledge of science, mathematics, and engineering.
  • Design, and conduct experiments as well as analyze and interpret data.
  • Use existing technologies related to systems, components, or processes to meet employer needs.
  • Function effectively in teams.
  • Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  • Possess an understanding of professional and ethical standards.
  • Be able to communicate effectively.

The EET program is accredited by the ETAC Accreditation Commission of ABET.
