Kirkwood is the affordable option! We offer more than $3 million in scholarships every year. 

Students in this program may be eligible to have half their tuition paid for by the Kibbie Grant.

During your Electronics Engineering Technology courses you'll you learn to:

  • Build and troubleshoot analog, digital, and RF circuits.
  • Compare and contrast the concepts of electronic communication transmission and reception.
  • On a PC, perform operations such as data analysis, circuit simulation, and report writing.
  • Write, compile, and execute a structured high-level program such as C or LabVIEW.
  • Exhibit professional conduct such as teamwork, punctuality, reliability, participation, and the proper use of language.
  • Apply principles of mathematics and physics to solve electronic and engineering problems.
  • Perform and record measurements of complex electronic circuits.

Completion of a program conference is required to be admitted to the program. You’ll learn more about the program as well as specific admissions requirements.
