Electronics & Robotics Department (ACT, EET)
Students in the Electronics Engineering Technology program will take program specific courses in electronics, electrical circuits and instruments, digital systems, microprocessors, microcontrollers, programmable logic controllers (PLC), PC repair, linear integrated circuits, and electronic drafting. In addition, students take courses in technical mathematics, technical communications, and technical physics.
Students can gain valuable hands-on experience through the school's co-op program while achieving college credit for practical work experience.
What are the objectives of the Electronics Engineering Technology program at Sinclair?
The Electronics Engineering Technology program provides students with an exciting opportunity to put electrical and electronics concepts into practice. The curriculum balances instruction in theory with hands-on laboratory applications.
A strong background in basics and in-depth study of advanced topics prepares students for careers involving building, testing, operation and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems in diversified areas such as digital, microcomputers, programming, and analog systems. EET curriculum also prepares students for entry into four-year Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology (BSEET) programs.
Program Educational Objectives:
- Graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to function as an entry level technician or closely related position in industry.
- Graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program
- Apply principles of DC and AC circuits, analog and digital electronics, microcontroller fundamentals and circuit assembly for analysis, basic design, circuit simulation, problem solving, assembly, troubleshooting and repair of electrical and electronic systems.
- Use various software packages to simulate, analyze and develope schematics and layouts of electronic circuits; technical communication skills for group work.
- Demonstrate a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities, including a respect for diversity; impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context.
- Apply principles of mathematics and physics to solve engineering technology problems.
- Demonstrate programming skills using a graphical language, assembly language or ladder logic to create computer solutions of engineering problems.
Students in EET 1158 learn to use Analytical Graphics Inc.'s industry-leading Systems Tool Kit software, which lets engineers and scientists analyze ground, sea, air, and space assets.
