Introduction/What is the Study of Electronics Engineering Technology?

The Electronics Engineering Technology program prepares engineering technologists who understand and can apply established scientific and engineering knowledge and methods in combination with technical skills of modern technology to support engineering activities. Students are provided with a strong concentration of both classroom instruction and practical hands-on laboratory design and testing experiences. Graduates are qualified for application positions in electronic systems analysis and design, product design and development, technical sales and service, and field engineering operations and maintenance.

Why Consider an Electronics Engineering Technology Major? 

An Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) graduate will work in the electronics field in positions such as engineering applications, embedded systems, electronic systems analysis, design and development, applications, test engineering, and technical sales and service. As a four-year engineering technology program the emphasis is on hands-on applications using parts, instrumentation and processes found in industry. It is a general electronics program that includes analog, digital, and microprocessor-based hardware and software analysis and design. An EET student should have a strong background in math, physics, and communication skills to be prepared for both technical and professional challenges.

The Electronics Engineering Technology degree program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

How to Declare (Admission and Declaration Process):

Admission to the Electronics Engineering Technology major is a two-phase process. When students initially declare, they are designated as pre-majors. Admission to full major status is determined by academic performance as a pre-major. See the department’s website for details http://www.etec.wwu.edu/.

Grade Requirements

A grade of C- or better is required for a student’s major or minor courses, and supporting courses for majors and minors.
