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. You may earn a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in electronics technology or a two-year associate degree in electronics and computer technology.
Majoring in one of the programs offered by the department provides you with opportunities to:
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.
As a technically competent person with excellent social and leadership skills, you will be qualified to move into a promising professional career.
You may choose to reinforce the major in Electronics Engineering Technology with a minor in Computer Engineering Technology, Mathematics, Computer Science, or Business. Additionally, students may choose to complete a second bachelor’s or a double major in Computer Engineering Technology.
If you have an AAS, AS, military ACE credit, Air Force CCAF credit or other transfer credit that encompasses the first two years of our Electronics Engineering Technology program content (basic electronics including hands-on lab work) then you may qualify as a candidate to complete this major as a 100% distance student. Visit the ISU DegreeLink pages for details.
Completion of the degree requirements for the bachelor's degree in Electronics Engineering Technology qualifies you for careers in:
Graduates of Indiana State's Electronics Engineering Technology program hold positions with companies such as TRW, Lilly Pharmaceuticals, Allen-Bradley, Siemens Corporation, Hewlett-Packard, Applied Extrusion Technology, Duke Energy, Florida Power and Light, Merck Chemical, Mobile, Bemis, Rockwell International, Indiana-Michigan Electric, IBM, Caterpillar, and Crane Naval Depot.
