A broad program designed to prepare graduates for employment in the manufacture, merchandising, testing, installation, maintenance, modification or repair of electrical and electronic equipment and systems, Industrial Electronics Technology offers both classroom instruction and hands-on experience.

Instruction covers DC and AC voltages; DC/AC Motors and motor control; and the generation, distribution and utilization of electrical power.

Practical training in troubleshooting, monitoring, operation and maintenance of mechanical, electrical and electronic equipment provides experience this graduate needs for a successful career. The Electrical Maintenance Technician certificate is also available. This program requires three years of maintenance experience for enrollment and provides a pathway toward the Associate in Applied Science degree with a major in Industrial Electronics.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

Purpose Statement – The purpose of the Industrial Electronics Technology program is to prepare graduates for the employment in industrial, manufacturing, and service economies using classroom instruction and hands-on experience. By concentrating on the basics and fundamentals of electronic/electrical devices, equipment, and systems, coupled with our General Education courses, we strive to train students not only for the job, but also for life.

Program Student Learning Outcomes:

  1. Apply safe workplace practices

  2. Apply basic formulas for electronics and electricity

  3. Interpret established symbols and terminology common to the electronic and electrical trade

  4. Develop basic trouble shooting techniques for electronic and electrical circuits 

 

Advisement Information

  • Contact Industrial Electronics faculty member during the advisement process.  If not available during advisement appointment, send an e-mail with advisement details as soon as possible.
  • When advising for IEE Internet classes, consult Kevin Boiter.

  • Students entering fall term must take EEM 117; all other courses will work around that course.  DO NOT OMIT EEM 117 for any reason.  It is important that students have this basic course then, even if test scores indicate the need for MAT 032, RDG 032 and ENG 032, since it is offered only in the fall.  Missing this course can result in a delay of graduation up to one year.  Students starting in spring or summer will take mostly developmental and general education courses until the fall semester.

  • Be sure student wants Industrial Electronics (maintaining, testing, repairing, manufacturing, installing equipment--work on the floor) rather than EET  (assisting in design, construction, analysis, modification, etc. of electronic circuits and systems).

  • If student plans to transfer, advise for transferable general education courses and required pre-requisites.
