Electronics Engineering Technology (EET.S.AAS)
65.0-66.0 Credit Hours
The Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) program provides students with exciting opportunities to put engineering concepts into practice. The curriculum balances instruction in theory with hands-on laboratory applications. A strong background in basics and in-depth study of advanced topics gives students careers in diversified areas, such as digital systems, microcomputers, programmable logic controllers, and analog systems. The program has modern state-of-the-art equipped laboratories and a highly qualified faculty. Those who wish to further their studies are well prepared for entry into the best four-year electronics engineering programs. Several articulation agreements exist between Sinclair's EET program and four-year colleges and universities.
- Apply principles of DC and AC circuits, analog and digital electronics, microcontroller fundamentals and circuit assembly for analysis, basic design, circuit simulation, problem solving, assembly, troubleshooting and repair of electrical and electronic systems.
- Use various software packages to simulate, analyze and develop schematics and layouts of electronic circuits; technical communication skills for group work.
- Demonstrate a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities, including a respect for diversity; impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context.
- Apply principles of mathematics and physics to solve engineering technology problems.
- Demonstrate programming skills using a graphical language, assembly language or ladder logic to create computer solutions of engineering problems.
