Overview
— This Electronic Engineering Technology program prepares 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. Normal vision and good manual dexterity are important for success in the program.

If you are interested in pursuing an Electrical Engineering baccalaureate degree at the time of admission, select the BSEE Transfer Track option that includes specific electronics, higher-level mathematics and college transfer courses. Upon graduation and meeting specific admission requirements, this prepares you for entry into the Milwaukee School of Engineering BSEE Transfer Track program.

Graduates of the Job-Ready emphasis who later become interested in pursuing a baccalaureate degree may continue in a customized certificate program to complete the requirements for admission to a four-year engineering 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 research and development, installation, sales and customer service. 

 

Program Learning Outcomes — Employers expect graduates 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 throughout one's career

 

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

 

Possible Careers:
Electronic Test Technician
