The Electrical Engineering Technology A.A.S. 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.

Electronic Engineering Technology Concentration

Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.)

The Electronic Engineering Technology concentration prepares graduates for various types of occupations involving electronics. The program is broad, rigorous, and comprehensive enough to ensure appropriate competencies in mathematics, science, communication skills, and electronics. It also provides enough technical electives to allow students to tailor, to some degree, the training toward their future or present employment. Typical areas of emphasis are communications, electronic repair, manufacturing, and field service repair. The student receives extensive hands-on experience in all the electronic courses using equipment now available on the job.

Typical jobs for graduates of this program are: customer service technician - installs and maintains various types of electronic equipment with service occasionally provided at the customer site; electronic engineering aide - assists engineers in the design, development, and testing of electronic equipment; industrial maintenance technician - works as an electronic repair technician in large industrial sites; and communications technician - installs and maintains various types of telecommunications, broadcasting, cable television equipment, or other data transmission systems.

Course Requirements

Recommended Full-Time Schedule


Cooperative work experience can be an important addition to a student’s formal classroom work. Co-op courses may substitute for technical courses with the prior approval of the Program Coordinator. The Career Employment Center will provide the correct course numbers.
