Electronics Engineering Technology Degree Program
Electronics have revolutionized the world. From iPods® and cell phones to personal computers, we use a number of high-tech devices multiple times a day. And individuals with the skills needed to build the electronic circuits that drive these devices are in demand. At DeVry University, you can earn a bachelor's degree in Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) at one of our campus locations and you could be at the forefront of a growing industry. In addition you have the option of earning your degree online with our bachelor's degree in Engineering Technology- Electronics (ET-E). Whether you decide to enroll on campus or online, qualified practitioner faculty will teach your classes, and you'll have regular opportunities for collaboration and interaction with classmates.
At DeVry University, you have the option of taking all or some* of your Engineering Technology courses online. Whether online or on campus, qualified practitioner faculty will teach your classes, and you'll have regular opportunities for collaboration and interaction with classmates.

We offer a specialization within the Electronics Engineering Technology degree program.
Focusing on applying concepts and skills to real-world situations, DeVry's Electronics Engineering Technology curriculum may include these career-enhancing courses:
- Communications Systems – This course introduces analog and digital communications systems at the circuit and subsystem level. Topics include the relationship between time domain and frequency domains, bandwidth requirements of various modulation schemes and noise effects.
- Mechatronics – Introducing electronic control of mechanical systems, this course covers sensors and transducers, signal conditioning, actuators, controllers, system models, system transfer functions, and dynamic system response.
- Signal Processing – Students in this course explore analog signal processing (ASP) and digital signal processing (DSP), with emphasis on DSP, and program ASP and DSP chips for applications in communications, control systems, digital audio processing, and digital image processing.
- Programming Environments and Java – This course introduces alternate programming environments such as command-line-oriented UNIX or Linux and Eclipse IDE. Topics include the Java programming language and advanced programming concepts such as exception handling and the event-driven model for graphical user interfaces.
- Microprocessor Architecture – Exploring internal architecture of the microprocessor, students in this course use assembly language and/or high-level language to program the microprocessor and develop simple algorithms. Applications of the microprocessor as a computing element used with storage devices and embedded controllers are covered.
