Engineering Technology - Electronic and Computer

Engineering Technology programs focus on application and practice with a balance of theory and laboratory experience. Engineering technology graduates are often considered “implementers” and apply their knowledge and practices to the solution of specific technical and standard design problems.

Electronic and Computer Engineering Technology jobs include:

  • communication engineers
  • electrical engineers
  • design engineers
  • control systems engineers
  • sales engineers
  • avionics engineers
  • engineering technicians
  • engineering associates
  • technical sales associates.

The electronic and computer engineering technology degree provides a solid foundation in a range of electronic circuit topics. Students also receive a strong background in mathematics, science and interpersonal communications. Education core topics include circuit analysis, digital electronics, microprocessors, programming and interfacing, computer programming and RF communication circuits.

How will Hesston College prepare me for future studies?

Hesston College offers an associate of science degree, a program that provides the opportunity to transfer into a university engineering technology program of your choice. The associate of science degree is especially designed to fulfill the primary sequence of courses required for subsequent upper-level engineering programs of study.

After Hesston College, you can choose to transfer to a university that provides the accredited program of study for the engineering technology field of your interest. Technology programs are accredited by ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology).

What courses will I take at Hesston College?

For electronic and computer engineering technology, you will take an engineering technology sequence which includes a number of science and math classes that provide the basics to transfer. These include two semesters of chemistry, two semesters of physics, and three semesters of calculus.

In addition, you will take general education classes which are needed for transferring into the engineering technology program. The recommended electronic and computer engineering technology program of study can be adjusted depending on the requirements for transfer to another institution.

Why should I choose Hesston College?

Class sizes at Hesston College are generally smaller than at large universities. Instructors pay attention to you and to your education. They are available to work with you individually, helping you to achieve your educational goals.

Hesston College has well-equipped science laboratories including wireless, computerized data gathering equipment in the physics lab. Computer programs, including Mathematica, allow you to graph and analyze your data electronically and see the data online. Students also do research and publish their findings on Web pages on the internet.
