Associate in Applied Science in Electronic Engineering Technology
Division of Engineering Technologies and Computer Sciences — Curriculum Code: 2307
A Dual Admissions Program with NJIT
Will Earn Upon Program Completion: Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree
Why major in Electronic Engineering Technology?
Look inside any computer, TV, telephone, medical instrument, or household appliance and you will find electronic components, circuits, and systems. The same is true for traffic control systems, aircraft engines, cameras, automobiles, and other devices. All of these were designed and manufactured by engineers and technicians trained in the principles of electronic technology. This program prepares students to work with engineers in the design, fabrication, installation, operation, maintenance, and repair of electronic and electrical instruments and machinery. The program for the Applied Science in Electronic Engineering Technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org
If I major in Electronic Engineering Technology, can I transfer to an upper-division college or university?
Yes. You may choose to participate in the Dual Admissions program with the New Jersey Institute of Technology and have all your credits applied to the first two years of NJIT’s four-year bachelor’s degree program. Otherwise you may choose to transfer to another college that will apply most or all of your credits toward a bachelor’s degree in Electronic Engineering Technology.
Are there any requirements I must satisfy before I start taking courses in my major?
Based on your placement test scores, you may have to take developmental courses in reading, English, and/or mathematics before taking the core curriculum courses in your major.
How long will it take for me to complete this degree?
If you do not need developmental course work and you register for an average of 16 credits each semester, you can complete the degree in two years. Part time students can complete the program in three or four years.
Where should I direct specific questions about this program?
Call the Division at (973) 877-4400.
Upon completion of this program, graduates will be able to:
Demonstrate use of basic electronic measurement instruments including multimeters and oscilloscopes to test, verify, and troubleshoot electronic circuits;
Demonstrate computer competency in using electronic simulation software to build, analyze, and verify analog/digital electronic circuit behavior;
