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 communicate effectively, and effectively use information from a variety of sources, regarding broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
  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 ability to apply circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, and microcomputers, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic systems;
  13. an ability to apply natural sciences and mathematics at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry to the building, testing, operation and maintenance of electrical/electronic systems;
  14. an ability to analyze, design, and implement control systems, instrumentation systems, communications systems, computer systems, or power systems;
  15. the ability to apply project management techniques to electrical/electronic systems; and,
  16. the ability to utilize differential and integral calculus, as a minimum, to characterize the performance of electrical/electronic system.

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.

Academic Advising Guide Sheet


The goal of the academic advising guide sheets and sample plans of study is to promote undergraduate student success by guiding all students to timely completion of an undergraduate degree. Students are not limited to the course sequence provided for their academic program. Instead, the sample plan of study is one possible path to completing your degree and is meant to be used as a guide for planning purposes in consultation with an academic advisor. The plans also help students prepare for meetings with their academic advisor and track their progress in their selected academic program.
