The Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) program is accredited by the EngineeringTechnology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

The EET program at Fairmont State is a specialized discipline with focus on application, implementation, theory, and applied design. Graduates work in industries that produce and use electrical and electronic equipment; including embedded systems, control systems, instrumentation, telecommunications, and power systems.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Electronics Engineering Techonology (BSEET) provides students with a greater emphasis on design and analysis, with advanced classes in programmable controllers, linear and microcomputer systems, data acquisition and control systems. An independent senior capstone project and elective options provide focused learning opportunities in technical areas of interest. BSEET graduates can expect to be involved with product design, creating performance requirements, testing, developing maintenance schedules, data analysis, programming PLC’s and microcontroller systems. Baccalaureate graduates are eligible to sit for the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (FE) in West Virginia, the first step to becoming a professional engineer.
