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 computer programming, project management, quality systems management, and statistics.
Program Educational Outcomes
SDSU Electronics Engineering Technology graduates will become professionals who:
- 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;
- Apply principles of mathematics, science and management and use appropriate technology to solve current and future problems in the field of electronics technology; and,
- 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:
- an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline; (Cross-curricular Skill: Inquiry and Analysis)
- an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline; (Cross-curricular Skill: Problem Solving)
- an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
- an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
- an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams. (Cross-curricular Skill: Teamwork)
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.
