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. The curriculum, content, and rigor of Oregon Tech’s BSEET and BSEE programs are closely matched. However, our BSEET program focuses more on the applied aspect of electrical engineering aimed at preparing graduates to assume engineering and technology positions in the electronics industry.
The BSEET program has excellent transferability and articulation agreements with many community colleges in Oregon.
Students who have completed an accredited Associates degree in Electronics Engineering Technology, Microelectronics Technology, or related field can transfer into the BSEET program with Junior status. If the right elective courses for the AAS are taken, then the BSEET degree can be completed in two additional years. Sample 2+2 schedules for the Oregon community colleges offering lower division EET courses are
Students interested in pursuing a BSEET should meet with the Program Director to discuss details about course transfers. Ideally, students should schedule a meeting after the first year of their AAS degree and apply for dual enrollment. Early Oregon Tech admission will make you eligible to apply for scholarships and financial aid at Oregon Tech.
The EERE department currently offers a BSEE post-baccalaureate degree, various dual majors, and a MS in Engineering degree (MSE). Check out the link below for more information on degree options available for BSEET students.
Students in the BSEET program may choose their engineering technical elective courses to match their interests and career goals. We offer a variety of technical elective courses in key high-tech areas.
Jobs and Careers in Electronics Engineering
A B.S. degree in electronics engineering technology brings graduates highly successful, rewarding careers that begin in the classroom through a distinctive approach to professional education and practice.
Recent graduates are employed at companies such as Intel, Tektronix, and Maxim Integrated. The program also provides a solid preparation for students intending to continue to graduate school to pursue master's degrees in engineering, engineering management, MBAs, and JDs.
A few of the career paths available to our graduates:
- Electrical Design Engineer
- Project Engineer
- Hardware Design Engineer
- Test Process Engineer
- Technical Marketing Engineer
- Electronics Technologist

BSEET Program Curriculum
The BSEET program is designed to provide our graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary for immediate employment and continued advancement in the field of electronics. The curriculum, content, and rigor of Oregon Tech’s BSEET program closely matches that of Oregon Tech's BSEE program. The difference: the BSEET degree 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.
Our courses are hands-on, rigorous, project-based, and focused on providing students the knowledge and skills necessary for immediate employment and continued advancement in the ﬁeld of electronics. A sampling of typical courses include:
EE 323 - Electronics II
Current sources. Current mirrors. Cascade active loads. Multistage amplifiers. Differential amplifiers. Frequency response. Miller’s theorem. Negative feedback amplifer types: Voltage, Current, transconductance and transresistance. Stability and pole location. Gain and phase margins. Frequency compensation.
EE 335 - Advanced Microcontrollers
Advanced course in design and development of microcontroller-based systems. Topics include internal peripheral devices, external devices interfacing, and micro-controller system design. Learning objectives are accomplished through design of fully integrated projects or lab assignments using C and/or assemble language programming.
EE 331 - 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, Hierarchal Design, CPLDs, and FPGAs. DC parameters and CPLD Timing Models. Design examples including keyboard scanner, counters, ALUs, multipliers and controllers.
