Electronic Engineering Technology Degree - curriculum
2012-13 Electronic Engineering Technology Associate in Applied Science Degree —
West Allis Campus
(Official WTCS title: Electronic Systems Technician) 


Program Code: 10-605-7

This curriculum goes into effect starting in summer 2012.

Overview — Electronic Engineering Technology is an associate degree program targeted to prepare you for professional and supervisory positions in the field of electronics. It includes opportunities to develop the skills for engineering support in high-tech electronic industry environments. Graduates who later become interested in pursuing a baccalaureate degree may continue in a customized certificate program to complete the necessary requirements for admission to an engineering technologist four-year program.

If you are interested in pursuing an engineering technologist baccalaureate degree at the time of admission, select the advanced option that includes specific electronics, higher-level mathematics and college transfer courses. Upon graduation and meeting specific admission requirements, this prepares you for entry as a junior in Milwaukee School of Engineering’s BS-ET program.

Career Outlook — Electronic Engineering Technicians (EET) find employment in many areas of business and government due to the increased usage of computer-controlled systems. These technicians, who assist engineers, scientists, and producers of electronic equipment and systems, represent one of the fastest growing segments of the workforce. Knowledge of mathematics, science and electronic equipment enables them to work in all areas of business and government, from research and development to installation, sales and customer service. Typical positions available to graduates of the program include research and development (R&D) technician, technical representative (commercial or military), quality control technician, repair and installation technician, and production assistant/supervisor.

Program Learning Outcomes — Employers expect you as an applicant to be able to:

  • Apply the practical and theoretical foundations and skills of electronic engineering technology to solve related problems
  • Apply critical thinking skills necessary to analyze, install, troubleshoot and maintain electronic systems and equipment
  • Repair electronic circuits and systems using industry-accepted test equipment and results interpretation
  • Apply a standard set of principles for continuous quality improvement on the job and for life

Preparation for Admission — The following are required for admission to the program:

  • A high school diploma or GED
  • One year of high school-level geometry and one year of high school-level algebra, or equivalent
  • Demonstration of proficiency in basic skills through a course placement assessment
  • Normal vision and good manual dexterity are important for success in the program.

This program will transfer to one or more four-year institutions.
