Electronic Engineering Technology AAS
Electrical and electronic technicians build, test and maintain complex electronic equipment such as computers, control systems, communication networks, power systems and medical devices. The Electronic Engineering Technology (EET) program at Bronx Community College prepares graduates to join the workforce as technical professionals in a variety of industries and services or to transfer to a four-year baccalaureate program in engineering technology.
The technical curriculum is combined with a program of general education to assure that graduates of the EET program have the prerequisite skills in reading, writing and communication that are necessary to function effectively in the workplace. The Electronic Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Electronic Engineering Technology students who plan to continue their studies may transfer directly to New York City College of Technology or other colleges offering the baccalaureate degree in Engineering Technology. Graduates’ transfer credits for technology courses taken at BCC will be evaluated by each college.
Within two or more years after graduation from Bronx Community College students in the Electronic Technology Program are expected to be
- graduates of a four-year baccalaureate program in Engineering Technology or pursuing additional formal education;
- gainfully employed as engineering technologists;
- attaining increasing levels of responsibility in their chosen career; and
- respectful of cultural diversity and practicing the profession in an ethical manner.
Upon successful completion of the Electronic Engineering Technology program requirements, students will be able to:
- Analyze and interpret technical data.
- Use mathematics to solve problems in electronics.
- Conduct standard tests and measurements.
- Conduct, analyze and interpret experiments.
- Identify, analyze, and solve engineering technology problems.
- Design and build prototype electronic systems such as power supply, counters, AM & FM radio, Microprocessor Control Systems, and optical fiber transmitter and receiver.
- Read circuit schematics, select electronic components.
- Solder and assemble circuits and printed circuit boards (PCBs).
- Simulate electronic circuits.
- Work effectively in a team environment.
