Electronics Systems Engineering Technology

The Bachelor of Science (BS) degree with an area of study in Electronics Systems Engineering Technology is designed for technologists employed in various phases of the electronics industry, including computer hardware, avionics, instrumentation and control, and communications. A total of 18 Area of Study credits must be from 300/400 level courses. The BS degree with an area of study in Electronic Systems Engineering Technology is a 124-credit program.

The Electronics Systems Engineering Technology Program’s goal is to educate engineering technology practitioners who are immediately relevant to or practicing in industry by frequently evaluating and improving our educational programs, engaging in scholarly and industrially based activities, and working within the broader community to be relevant to the professional and global community.

The AST vision and mission statements are reviewed and updated periodically, most recently in 2018. These reviews are performed by the mentors as well as the Industrial Advisory Council (IAC). Details are published in the School and IAC meeting minutes. The current vision and mission statements are published on Thomas Edison State University’s website.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Electronics Systems Engineering Technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.
