Associate of Applied Science degree

2 years (4 semesters, 1 summer)

The Electronics Engineering Technology program balances theory and practical applications to help students design, test, analyze, operate and troubleshoot complex electronic systems. The program integrates LabVIEW,® a graphic-based programming language used by many of the major technology-based employers for data acquisition, process control and automated test instrumentation. Students can transfer more than 40 EET credit hours to UNI toward a B.S. in Electrical and Information Engineering Technology. The curriculum may also be modified to maximize credits transferable to BSEE and BSEET degree programs. EET graduates may also seek certification by the Electronics Technicians Association, International Inc.

Career opportunities: field-service, electronics design, electronics testing, biomedical electronics, avionics, printed circuit board computer-aided design, technical writer, computer-integrated manufacturing, advanced industrial manufacturing, electronic systems repair, computer repair, controls, security systems, radio communications, component testing, instrumentation.
