About Electronics Engineering Technology
The four-year program leading to a B.S. degree in electronics engineering technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ETAC of ABET). It is the only four-year program in electronics engineering technology that is accredited by ETAC of ABET in the State of Missouri at a public state-supported four-year institution. The B.S. degree program is a broad-based technical program and has strong foundations in mathematics, basic and engineering sciences, computers, and has excellent blend of theory and practice of electrical/electronics engineering and technology principles. The curriculum is designed to train students in the fundamentals of electronics applications via hands-on experimentation in a variety of laboratory settings.

BS EET Sample Program
Program Flowchart

The program educational goals for BS EET graduates are:

 i. Possess the general knowledge of electrical and electronics industry such as concepts, terminologies, basic and standard problem-solving techniques.

ii. Demonstrate the ability to analyze, design, and implement electronic systems in one or more of the areas related to control systems, instrumentation systems, communications systems, computer systems, or power systems.

iii. Function effectively in a group environment in the industrial workplace through demonstration of technical and communication skills.

iv. Understand professional, ethical, and social responsibilities.

v. Show respect for diversity and knowledge of contemporary professional, societal and global issues.

vi. Demonstrate a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.

vii. Continue professional development through life-long learning.

The student learning outcomes for BS EET at course-level are:

Aa. the application of circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, and microcomputers to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems.
Ab. the applications of physics or chemistry to electrical/electronic(s) circuits in a rigorous mathematical environment at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry.

Ba. the ability to analyze, design, and implement control systems, instrumentation systems,
communications systems, computer systems, or power systems.
Bb. the ability to apply project management techniques to electrical/electronic(s) systems.
Bc. the ability to utilize statistics/probability, transform methods, discrete mathematics, or applied differential equations in support of electrical/electronic(s) systems.

The student learning outcomes for BS EET at program-level are:

a. an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;

b. an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;

c. an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;

d. an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;

e. an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;

f. an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;

g. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and nontechnical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;

h. an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;

i. an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;

j. a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and

k. a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
