The Electrical Engineering Technology AAS degree is accredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering including Automated Control Systems, Convergence, Electrical, and Electronic concentrations.
The Electrical Engineering Technology program is a comprehensive program with various options. This program offers four concentrations: Electrical Engineering Technology, Electronic Engineering Technology, Convergence Engineering Technology and Automated Control Systems (offered only at the Cookeville campus). See information below for specifics for each option.
The A.A.S. degree is designed to prepare a student for employment upon graduation. Some universities, at their discretion, accept some technical courses for transfer. A student who plans to transfer to a university should consult his/her advisor and the receiving university about transfer and articulation policies. Failure to do so could result in loss of transfer credits.

The Automated Control Systems concentration of the Electrical Engineering Technology degree prepares students for a career in the field of industrial automation. The program includes instruction in the theory and application of automatic control systems as well as numerous hands-on laboratory experiences using off-the-shelf automation equipment as seen in a typical industrial application. Students will gain an in depth understanding of programmable control systems such as programmable logic controllers (PLC), programmable motion controllers, process controllers, transducers, and human machine interface (HMI) systems.
Graduates of the program should be able to:
- Create original and modify existing programs for PLCs and other programmable control devices.
- Create functional and usable HMIs on Panelview systems.
- Integrate various off-the-shelf automation products to produce a single complete automated manufacturing system.
- Use software application programs such as CAD/ CAM, word processors, and spreadsheet to produce technical documents such as operations manuals, electrical schematics, and technical reports.
- Control systems technician
- Industrial maintenance technician
- Process control technician
- Instrumentation technician
