Program Information
The Electronics Engineering Technology Bachelor of Science degree program blends theory with an extensive hands-on, lab-based course sequence. The program has three key components: electronics foundations, advanced electronics applications, and applied management. The goal is to prepare graduates to use be proficient in using, developing, and troubleshooting electronic devices, networks, and controls. Electronics technology courses include circuits, analog and digital systems (intro and advanced), networking, programming, microcontrollers, industrial controls and PLCs, circuit board design, power systems, and communication systems. The program also includes courses in project management, quality systems management, statistics, and industrial safety.

Program Educational Outcomes
SDSU Electronics Engineering Technology graduates will become professionals who:

  1. Achieve positions of increasing responsibility or leadership with employers, professional organizations, or civic organizations as an indicator of professional competence, demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively, and successfully function in team environments;
  2. Apply principles of mathematics, science and management and use appropriate technology to solve current and future problems in the field of electronics technology; and,
  3. Complete licensure, certification, short courses, workshops, and/or advanced degrees to be effective technical managers in the global business environment.

Student Learning Outcomes
EET graduates have:

  1. an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of their disciplines to broadly-defined engineering technology activities.
  2. an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies.
  3. an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes.
  4. an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives.
  5. an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team.
  6. an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems.
  7. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
  8. an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development.
  9. an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities, including a respect for diversity.
  10. a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context.
  11. a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
  12. an understanding of management theory and practice, including the strategic planning process, project management, and personal and organizational goal setting.

The program provides coursework on campus, in classroom, laboratory, and in field-based settings.  The EET program has three dedicated electronics labs for bench work, circuit testing, and project fabrication.
