Electrical Engineering Technology
Build a better world
What You'll Learn
Electrical Engineers help make our world a better place through the building and maintenance of electrical equipment. With so much of the world powered by electricity, these engineers play a pivotal role in keeping many systems running. They work on everything from designing the electrical systems in cars and airplanes to developing digital devices like the GPS.
The Ivy Tech Electrical Engineering Technology program prepares you to pursue a bachelor’s degree in the subject and exposes you to foundational skills and field knowledge.
Picturing yourself in the program? Here’s what you’ll learn about in the classroom:
Core electrical engineering concepts and theories
AC and DC circuit theory
Analog and digital circuit applications
Computer programming using C++ and microcontroller
Passive and active filter design
How to use circuit simulations
How to use lab equipment and strengthen lab skills
How to conduct and interpret results of tests, measurements, and experiments
The Electrical Engineering Technology AS is a transferable degree that provides hands-on learning opportunities and prepares students for a bachelor's degree program. Students graduate with a solid understanding of how to actualize electronic designs and perform engineering tasks such as collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data. They'll also gain skills in prototyping, installing, maintaining, and troubleshooting various electronic systems.
The Electrical Engineering program at Ivy Tech lays the groundwork for the following careers:
Associate Degree – Transferable Degree
The Associate of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology is designed for students who wish to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor’s degree. You can save upward of $10,000 by completing your first two years at Ivy Tech and then transferring!
Ivy Tech has partnerships with several Indiana colleges and universities through our Transfer Single Articulation Pathway (TSAP) program. View our transfer partners below or check out our TSAP page to learn more.
Of course, Ivy Tech credits are likely able to transfer to additional universities and colleges outside of the TSAP program. Talk to our transfer advocates for information about continuing your education after completing your associate degree at Ivy Tech. You are also encouraged to contact the university to which you plan to transfer. Note that admission is not guaranteed just by enrolling in the Electrical Engineering Technology program. You will need to be admitted to the institution you intend to transfer to.
A completion guide provides the recommended path to graduation, broken out by eight-week terms. For students taking fewer courses at a time, the courses are numbered to show the overall number that will be taken.
Electrical engineering and electronics technology are fast-changing fields vital to almost every facet of modern life, and many employees and entrepreneurs are needed every year to meet demands. If you like math, science, and technology, EET may be the choice for you. The Fort Wayne program is accredited by the ETAC (Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission) of ABET. With the EET-AS degree, you can get a high-paying job, and continue to work on a Bachelor’s degree at PFW or another university.
