Electronic Engineering Technology
Bachelor of Science (B.S.)Program Website
WVU Tech Catalog
Ours is a plus-two program that builds on associate degrees earned in electronic engineering technology or similar areas. The program provides an opportunity to choose a plan of study toward a bachelor’s degree which best meets the student’s needs. Entrance requirements to this program include an associate degree in electronic engineering technology with appropriate coursework, including physical sciences and mathematics (through analytic geometry with calculus).
All students must meet the requirements of the institution and the core curriculum for graduation.
THINGS YOU'LL LEARN
An in-depth background in electronics and the skills to put that background to work in the field.
Control Systems Technology
Undertake a study of continuous control systems in open and closed loop, including transfer functions in the frequency domain and the system’s time domain response. You'll explore components including op-amps, potentiometers, synchros, motors, amplifiers, tachometers and transducers while learning about industrial control process concepts and systems. The emphasis is on closed-loop feedback systems, system characteristics and stability analysis. Plus, you'll learn about the use of the microcomputer in system control, system analysis and simulation.
Microprocessors and Digital Systems
This course covers analog/digital and digital/analog circuits. It emphasizes circuit minimization techniques such as Karnaugh mapping, variable entered maps and the Quine McCluskey Method. Other areas explored include LSI circuits, such as multiplexers and demultiplexers, decoders and memory devices. The course also includes an introduction to state machine design. Characteristics of logic families are covered. The final one-third of the course is an introduction to microprocessor architecture.
The primary focus of this course is the analysis and management techniques used to implement a successful project. Topics include: project planning, project scheduling, project staffing and project control; project administration, economic analysis and reporting procedures; and material and labor cost estimating. You'll also learn about project management software, analyze a project and present an in-depth project report that you put together during the course.
