What is the program about?
The Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) program provides students with exciting opportunities to put engineering technology 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 gives students careers in diversified areas, such as digital systems, microcomputers, programmable logic controllers, and analog systems. The program has modern state-of-the-art equipped laboratories and a highly qualified faculty. Those who wish to further their studies are well prepared for entry into the best four-year electronics engineering technology programs. Several articulation agreements exist between Sinclair's EET program and four-year colleges and universities.This degree program contains one or more embedded certificates which will be automatically awarded when the certificate requirements are completed. If you do not want to receive the embedded certificate(s), please notify Registration and Student Records at firstname.lastname@example.org.
