Electronic Engineering 2013-2014

These are 2013-2014 plans of study.

<--- Back to 2014-2015 plans of study


Graduates of Columbus State’s Electronic Engineering Technology program support the design, installation, testing, operation, troubleshooting, maintenance, and repair of analog and digital electronics and embedded programmable microcontroller systems.

The program will produce graduates who:

  • Possess the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to be a productive employee in the field of electrical/electronic engineering technology
  • Apply professional ethics in the workplace
  • Function well in a globally diverse society
  • Pursue continuous lifelong learning.

The Associate Degree Program in Electronic Engineering Technology prepares students to assemble, troubleshoot, and repair electronic systems; to read and interpret complex instructions, technical literature, and engineering and schematic drawings; and to solve a variety of problems.

Coursework includes basic DC and AC electronic and digital systems, data communication systems, advanced programmable digital systems, electronic amplifier and switching systems, data acquisition systems, instrumentation and process control systems, human machine interface systems, distributed control systems, and embedded microcontroller systems. Each topic is enhanced with corresponding hands-on labs.

Columbus State’s Electronic Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, (410)
347-7700. For additional information, visit

Graduates who wish to continue their education may transfer associate degree credits to a number of four-year institutions which offer baccalaureate degrees in Engineering Technology. These include Miami University’s Bachelor of Science degree completion program. This degree completion option, offered via distance learning technology, uses live interactive video teleconferencing, available entirely on Columbus State’s Downtown Campus.

Electronic Engineering Technology shares related coursework with the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology degree and the Information Technology Support Technician Major. For information, refer to those sections of the catalog.

NOTE: The degree formerly known as Computer Electronics Major – Technology Systems Technician Track has been renamed Information Technology Support Technician Major and is now listed under the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology degree.

Consistent with the accreditation standards of ABET, Columbus State Electronic Engineering Technology graduates will have developed:

  • An appropriate mastery of the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of their disciplines
  • An ability to apply current knowledge and adapt to emerging applications of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology
  • An ability to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments, and to apply experimental results to improve processes
  • An ability to apply creativity in the design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to program educational objectives
  • An ability to function effectively on teams
  • An ability to identify, analyze and solve technical problems
  • An ability to communicate effectively
  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, lifelong learning
  • An ability to understand professional, ethical and social responsibilities
  • A respect for diversity and a knowledge of contemporary professional, societal and global issues
  • A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.

Additionally graduates will demonstrate knowledge, skills and hands-on competence in:

  • The application of circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, and microcontrollers to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems.
  • The applications of physics or chemistry to electrical/ electronic(s) circuits in a rigorous mathematical environment at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry.
