Graduates of Columbus State Community College's Electronic Engineering Technology Associate of Applied Science Degree Program support the design, installation, testing, operation, troubleshooting, maintenance, and repair of analog and digital electronics and embedded programmable microcontroller systems.

The program will produce graduates who:

  • Possess the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to be a productive employee in the field of electrical/electronic engineering technology
  • Demonstrate professional responsibility and accountability
  • Employ effective oral and written communication
  • Practice collaborative teamwork
  • Discover a passion for continuous lifelong learning
Technology prepares students to assemble, troubleshoot, and repair electronic systems; to read and interpret complex instructions, technical literature, and engineering and schematic drawings; and to solve a variety of problems. Coursework includes basic DC and AC electronic and digital systems, data communication systems, advanced programmable digital systems, electronic amplifier and switching systems, data acquisition systems, instrumentation and process control systems, human machine interface systems, distributed control systems, and embedded microcontroller systems. Each topic is enhanced with corresponding hands-on labs.

Columbus State’s Electronic Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, 415 N. Charles St., Baltimore, MD 21201, (410) 347-7700. For additional information, visit

Graduates who wish to continue their education may transfer associate degree credits to a number of four-year institutions which offer baccalaureate degrees in Engineering Technology. These include Miami University’s Bachelor of Science degree completion program. This degree completion option, offered via distance learning technology, uses live interactive video teleconferencing, available entirely on Columbus State’s Downtown Campus.

Electronic Engineering Technology shares related coursework with the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology degree and the Information Technology Support Technician Major. For information, refer to those sections of the catalog.

Graduates of Columbus State's Electronic Engineering Technology degree program will have acquired the following learned capabilities:

  • an ability to apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to narrowly defined engineering technology activities;
  • an ability to apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge;
  • an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements, and to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments;
  • an ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team;
  • an ability to identify, analyze, and solve narrowly defined engineering technology problems;
  • an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  • an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
  • an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities, including a respect for diversity; and
  • a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement

Additionally graduates will demonstrate the skills necessary to enter careers in the design, application, installation, manufacturing, operation and/or maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems and will typically have strengths in the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of existing electrical systems and will demonstrate knowledge, skills and hands-on competence in:

  • the application of circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, and microcomputers, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems; and
  • the application of natural sciences and mathematics at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic systems.
