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.

Career opportunities: field-service technician; electronics design technician; electronics test technician; biomedical electronics technician; avionics technician; technical writer; computer-integrated manufacturing technician; advanced industrial manufacturing technician; electronic systems repair technician; computer repair technician; controls technician; security systems technician; radio communications technician; component test technician.
