ABET Accredited

The Bachelor of Science in Electronic Systems Engineering Technology at the Virginia Beach and Newport News, VA campuses and Online is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and the Electrical/Electronic(s) Engineering Technology and Similarly Named Programs Program Criteria.

Electronic Systems Engineering Technology Overview

ESET graduates function in multidisciplinary teams to design, install, maintain, and repair systems, components, or processes meeting specific needs for engineering applications. They serve as a link between engineers and technicians in the workplace where they play a key role from the conception of electronic systems until their implementation. They are involved in the development, testing, production, and quality assurance of components and/or systems such as circuit boards, wireless phones, medical equipment, and control systems.

The curriculum provides ESET graduates with the education and foundation needed for employment in a variety of industries in the private and public sector, including the computer industry, homeland security, automation and manufacturing, and education. Electronic Systems concentration graduates are employed in a wide spectrum of areas in positions such as engineering consultant, electrical engineering or computer engineering technologist, product engineer, or project manager. Through 十大正规平台 University's year-round schedule, you could earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronic Systems Engineering Technology with a concentration in Electronic Systems in as little as 2.5 years.
