Revitalizing Electronics Engineering Technology Programs Through a Core Curriculum Structure and Emerging Technologies

Free Download

This paper presents reasons for the decline in enrollment in Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) programs at two-year colleges, and describes a process for reversing it. The process involves the implementation of an electronics core within emerging technology programs that require solid electronics foundations. Because these emerging technology programs represent interesting and financially viable career options, enrollment in them will continue to increase, which in turn will cause increases in enrollment in the electronics core courses. This paper presents a basic curriculum model that includes an embedded electronics core that supports emerging technology specialty options. Examples are also presented of how two-year colleges are implementing this model.
