Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology
Associate in Applied Science (AAS)
Offered through Engineering and Skilled Trades
@ Florissant Valley
Students who complete the Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology (EEET) program will be trained to assist engineers in the design and development of computers, communications equipment, robotic manufacturing equipment, medical devices, navigational equipment, power distribution systems and other electrical/electronic equipment. Graduates of this program often work in product evaluation and testing, using measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust, test and repair equipment.
The recommended academic plan blends general education requirements with options for areas of concentration to ensure students get the most out of their certificate or degree.
Accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
Through classroom work and practical experience in technology laboratories, you will learn:
- Electrical/electronic theory and its application to analog and digital circuitry
- To prepare and interpret engineering drawings
- To perform testing procedures
- To compile technical data
- System and component troubleshooting
Electives: Build a strong foundation then choose an area of focus for further study:
- Biomedical technology — Maintain, troubleshoot and repair the electronic components of medical equipment.
- Electronics technology — Assist engineers and senior technicians in the research, development, manufacturing, testing, installation or maintenance of a variety of products including the design and production of circuit boards.
- Electrical technology – Train to work on electric power distribution systems, industrial power systems and subsystems as well as in the manufacturing control (robotics) industries. Or assist the developers of wind, solar and traditional energy systems.
Electrical and Electronics Engineering technicians assist engineers in the design and development of:
- Communications equipment
- Robotic manufacturing equipment
- Medical devices
- Navigational equipment
- Power distribution systems
- Other electrical/electronic equipment
Graduates of this program often work in product evaluation and testing, using measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust, test and repair equipment.
Small class size and a focus on hands-on activity.
Stackable: If you’ve earned a certificate of specialization in Biomedical Electronics Technology some of your credits can apply towards your Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology AAS degree.
Credits that transfer: In this specific AAS program — Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology — many credits transfer to four-year institutions with Electrical or Electronics Engineering Technology programs.
- Students who are pursuing a bachelor’s degree in an engineering technology field often find that STLCC provides a strong foundation at a fraction of the cost of a public university.
- We invite you to meet with an STLCC academic advisor for information about STLCC’s Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology program and how it can fit with your academic and career goals. CLICK HERE
- You might also consider STLCC’s Engineering Science AS (Associate in Science) degree program — the Associate in Science degree is designed to transfer to engineering bachelor’s degree programs.
