Description

The Associate of Applied Science degree in Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology provides students with a core of engineering-related courses and a focus on digital and electronic systems, robotics, microsystems and the design/development of electrical and electronic circuits. Electrical and electronics engineering technicians help engineers design and develop computers, communications equipment, medical monitoring devices, navigational equipment and other electrical and electronic equipment. They often work in product evaluation and testing, using measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust, test and repair equipment.

The degree program articulate with Kent State's Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Technology.

The Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology major comprises the following concentrations:

  • Computer
  • Electrical Engineering Technology (General)

FULLY OFFERED AT:

  • Trumbull Campus
  • Tuscarawas Campus

Accreditation

Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET) (Tuscarawas Campus only)

Admission Requirements

The university affirmatively strives to provide educational opportunities and access to students with varied backgrounds, those with special talents and adult students who graduated from high school three or more years ago.

Kent State campuses at Ashtabula, East Liverpool, Geauga, Salem, Stark, Trumbull and Tuscarawas, and the Regional Academic Center in Twinsburg, have open enrollment admission for students who hold a high school diploma, GED or equivalent.

For more information on admissions, contact the Regional Campuses admissions offices.
