Associate in Applied Science

Electronic Engineering Technology

This Degree prepares graduates for entry-level work as technicians or for pursuing B.S. degrees in electronic engineering technology. Students gain knowledge and skills in one of five concentrations chosen from the Engineering Technology curriculum: general, computer, communications, clinical, and rehabilitation. This Degree is accepted for transfer at selected four-year institutions.

Graduates will be able to:

  • Use the following computer programs: Pspice, Electronic Work Bench, Derive, and Microsoft Office.
  • Solve Engineering problems using calculus.
  • Solve numerical problems associated with the principles of engineering.
  • Construct and analyze simple DC and AC circuits.
  • Construct and analyze solid-state circuits consisting of diodes and transistors.
  • Construct and analyze digital logic circuits.
  • Describe and utilize basic structures and operation of microprocessors including assembly language programming.
  • Manipulate scientific apparatus, gather and analyze data, draw conclusions from laboratory information, and write clear concise scientific reports.

Note:

MA 108 is a prerequisite for MA 109 or Test Placement or permission from the Department chairperson.

CIS 108 is the prerequisite for CIS 165.
