Program Overview: Graduates of the Electronic Engineering Technology (EET) Program have the necessary skills to use electronic test equipment to make measurements, understand electrical schematics and blueprints, analyze electronic circuits and understand fundamental design concepts, relate the principles of electrical circuits to hydraulic circuits and pneumatics. The graduates are ready to support manufacturing, design test equipment, produce and test products, and to assist in product development.
Work & Employment: Successful graduates secure positions as test equipment designers, quality assurance and reliability specialists, sales and service professionals, control system technicians, medical equipment experts, or as part of a manufacturing support team. Industry Certifications (if applicable): Students can be prepared to take an Electronics Technicians Association, International certification examination; or the Fanuc certification.
Hands-On Learning: Most EET classes include a hands-on laboratory component taught by instructors with industrial experience. You will learn how to use electronic test equipment like oscilloscopes, function generators, and digital multimeters.
Transfer Opportunities: Graduates have the option to pursue a baccalaureate from Northern Illinois University and other select universities. Graduates of this Electronic Engineering and Technology degree have limited transfer options. Students are advised to contact the institution to which they plan to transfer to ensure course transfer credit availability. Students should also consult with an Academic Advisor, the Dean, or Academic Chair of the EET program.
