Previous courses Electronic Engineering Technology (EET)

Electronic engineering technologists are in demand in a variety of fields ranging from biomedicine to automated manufacturing. Any, indeed all, of these fields provide products or services that improve the lives of others in significant ways. Electronic engineering technology can provide a challenging, rewarding, and satisfying profession for qualified practitioners.

Graduates of Columbus State’s Electronic Engineering Technology program support the design, installation, testing, operation, troubleshooting, maintenance, and repair of analog and digital electrical/electronic and embedded microcontroller systems.

The program will produce graduates who:

  • Possess the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to be a productive employee in the field of electrical/electronic engineering technology
  • Apply professional ethics in the workplace
  • Function well in a globally diverse society
  • Pursue continuous lifelong learning.

Columbus State’s six-quarter associate degree program in Electronic Engineering Technology prepares students to:

1) Assemble, troubleshoot, and repair electronic systems;

2) Read and interpret complex instructions, technical literature, and engineering and schematic drawings; and

3) Solve a variety of problems.

Coursework includes basic electronic and digital systems, advanced programmable digital systems, electronic switching systems, data acquisition systems, instrumentation and control systems, human/machine interface systems, distributed control systems, and embedded microcontroller systems. Each topic is enhanced with corresponding hands-on labs.

Columbus State’s Electronic Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, (410) 347-7700. For additional information, visit .

Graduates who wish to continue their education may transfer associate degree credits to a number of four-year institutions which offer baccalaureate degrees in Engineering Technology. These include Miami University’s Bachelor of Science degree completion program offered via online/distance learning entirely on Columbus State’s campus.

Electronic Engineering Technology shares related coursework with the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology degree. For information, refer to that section of the catalog.

NOTE: The degree formerly known as Computer Electronics Major – Technology Systems Technician Track has been renamed Information Technology Support Technician Major and is now listed under the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology degree.

Columbus State Electronic Engineering Technology graduates will have developed:

  • An appropriate mastery of the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of their disciplines
  • The ability to apply current knowledge and adapt to emerging applications of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology
  • The ability to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments, and to apply experimental results to improve processes
  • A creative proficiency in the design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to program educational objectives
  • The ability to function effectively on teams
  • The ability to identify, analyze and solve technical problems
  • Effective communication skills
  • An appreciation for, and the capacity to engage in, lifelong learning
  • An understanding of professional, ethical and social responsibilities
  • A respect for diversity and a knowledge of contemporary professional, societal and global issues
  • A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.

Additionally graduates will demonstrate knowledge, skills and hands-on competence in:

  • The application of circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, and microcontrollers to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems.
  • The applications of physics or chemistry to electrical/electronic(s) circuits in a rigorous mathematical environment at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry.
