What you will learn

Electronics Engineering Technology is an in-demand field that is focused on the theory, concepts, and practical applications of electrical engineering. Oregon Tech Electronics Engineering Technology graduates possess a combination of theoretical and practical understanding and skills, and are ready for professional practice on Day One because of the real-world, applied approaches that students engage in throughout the program. The Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology (BSEET) program is specifically designed to prepare graduates to assume engineering and technology positions in the electronics industry.

Oregon Tech offers the only ABET accredited BSEET in the State of Oregon at its Portland-Metro Campus in Wilsonville. To meet the needs of working professionals, some courses are also offered in the evenings at Oregon Tech’s Willow Creek Center in Beaverton. Oregon Tech’s program is a critical piece of students’ path to degree since it provides the only transferability opportunity in Oregon towards a BS degree for students with an Associate of Applied Science programs in Electronics Technology, Microelectronics, and related programs offered at community colleges in the state. Oregon Tech has transfer agreements with all the accredited Electronics Engineering Technology and related programs in Oregon in order to guarantee seamless transferability of credits towards our BSEET degree.

Difference between BSEET and BSEE degrees

The BSEET program is especially suited for working professionals with an associate degree in Electronics Engineering Technology, Microelectronics Technology or equivalent coursework. A transfer student would take two years to earn a BSEET degree, and three years for a BS in Electrical Engineering.

Courses


The curriculum, content, and rigor of Oregon Tech’s BSEET degree closely matches its BS in Electrical Engineering. The difference: the BSEET is designed to offer excellent transferability and degree completion opportunities for students who have already completed lower division coursework, or an Associate’s degree in Electronics Engineering Technology, Microelectronics Technology, or related technology programs. A sampling of typical courses include:

Solid State Electronic Devices

Study of crystal properties, semiconductors, atoms, energy bands, and optoelectronic devices.

Engineering Programming

Introduction to combinational logic gates, boolean algebra, karnaugh mapping, and more.

Digital System Design with HDL

Introduces the student to a Hardware Descriptive Language and describes its role in digital design. Dataflow, Behavioral and Structural Modeling, Logic Partitioning, Hierarchical Design, CPLDs and FPGAs. DC Parameters and CPLD Timing Models.

Microcontroller Engineering

Design and development of microcontroller based systems including peripheral devices and external device interfacing.
