Dunwoody Electronics Engineering Technology

Microchips aren’t just found in laptops and smartphones. From traffic lights to robotic assembly lines, most modern technologies use integrated circuits in sensors and controls to automate certain processes.

Dunwoody’s Electronics Engineering Technology program will provide you with the hands-on experience and theoretical knowledge needed to design and troubleshoot circuits utilizing the latest semiconductor devices; biomedical devices; microprocessors; microcontrollers; circuit design and fabrication equipment; and data acquisition devices.

Design a circuit and take it from a simulation model to functional prototype to printed board.

Utilize circuit manufacturing techniques to create surface-mount and through-hole circuit boards.

Train on LabVIEW, graphical systems engineering software used widely in industry.

Most students complete internships—often in the medical device industry, which is a robust part of Minnesota’s manufacturing industry.

The electronics technology field offers a variety of career paths as well as options for further study.

This degree directly transfers into Dunwoody’s Bachelor of Science in Automation & Controls Engineering Technology or the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering Technology.

Class topics include:

  • Basic electricity and electronics
  • Digital electronics
