Electronic Engineering Technology

Bachelor of Science

The FVSU’ Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronic Engineering Technology is the only one of its kind available in middle Georgia.

The program seeks to develop the student’s ability to apply basic circuits

and theories in the analysis and design of analog and digital systems and to use appropriate instrumentation for troubleshooting and analysis of electronic systems; to cultivate an awareness of professional engineering standards and code of ethics; and to instill the value of teamwork and cooperation necessary for successful careers and living.

Graduate of the program go on to pursue graduate study in related field of electronic engineering technology, or enter careers as application engineers, engineering technologists, manufacturing engineers, plant operation engineers, production engineers, sales engineers, field service engineers, or telecommunication engineers and others.

The key aspect of the program is its small class sizes in technical courses.  This provides students with the opportunity to receive individualized attention in their training.  The laboratory facilities and equipment provide relevant and practical laboratory hands-on experience for students.

The Electronic Technology Program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), Inc., (www.abet.org),

415 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21201.

Admission Requirements

To be admitted to the university high school students must have a GPA of 2.25 as well as an SAT score of 430 on Critical Thinking/Verbal and 400 on Math or an ACT score of 17 on English and 17 on Math.
