Development Department is an elective for the Industrial Electronics program
Manufacturers of almost every product depend on complex electrical and electronic
equipment for a variety of functions, and field technicians with an Industrial Electronics degree and training can get the job done!
These field technicians have a wealth of responsibilities, depending on the job
- Traveling to factories and businesses to install, maintain, and repair customer
- Working in repair shops located in service centers and factories
- Using diagnostic tools, such as multimeters that measure voltage, current, resistance,
capacitance, inductance, and gain
- Using signal generators and oscilloscopes to calibrate, maintain, and repair equipment
- Using PLCs, industrial instrumentation, DC and AC machinery, and power distribution
in the automatic control of industrial processes
Geared up with skills in science, mathematics, and the practical application of
electrical and electronic principles used in industry, the 2-year IET program
graduate will be ready to test-drive his or her skills and install, operate, maintain,
or sell - as a technician - in a variety of business and industry settings including:
- Utility Companies
If you have the drive and determination to excel in this high-tech, hard-hitting
engineering environment 2-year degree in Industrial Electronics will get you there!
