Electronics Engineering Technology (EET)

ISU’s Electronics Engineering Technology major optimizes the practical learning experience to clarify and support the theoretical design of electrical and electronic circuits, components, and systems. Use of modern design techniques, computer modeling, state-of-the-art laboratory experiences, and small learner oriented classes help each student reach their fullest potential.

The Electronics Engineering Technology program at Indiana State University is a model of experiential learning. Classes are structured to provide a maximum of hands-on laboratory based experience for the learner from their very first introductory course through the final completion of the program of study. This serves to prepare the graduate for immediate application based positions in the "real world." Both a practitioner’s and a theorist’s degree, the program provides technical and managerial skills. Among technical subjects studied are electronics, circuit analysis, electronic devices and instrumentation design, industrial electronic pulse circuits, and programmable logic controllers. Managerial study in computer systems management, industrial organization, and industrial supervision is combined with technical competence to create a program of quality and diversity.
