This two-year program of study prepares students for admission to a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree program in Electronics Engineering Technology at Central Washington University (CWU) as well as for the workplace.  If students goal is to complete the BS at CWU it is recommend they speak to the EET Coordinator for details prior to starting this program.

If you want to go to work immediately upon completion of the North Seattle Community College program –whether you continue into advanced training or not – you will find that the course work has given you an excellent foundation in applied engineering. Our program is popular among employers because graduates are skilled in practical engineering applications.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this degree, students will be able to:

  • • Understand technical concepts and terms used in the electronics field.
  • • Analyze and troubleshoot electronic systems using standard instrumentation and or software simulation.
  • • Use, configure, and troubleshoot computer hardware, operating systems and basic networks.
  • • Repair, maintain and install electronic and electrical systems.
  • • Locate, evaluate and apply relevant information from various sources. 
  • • Use standard business software as a communications tool.

Many classes have prerequisites. Prerequisites are those classes that prove eligibility for entry-level classes by testing or by having satisfied prior course work. Course work earned at other institutions must be unofficially evaluated or approved by a program advisor before registering. Course in this degree with pre-requisites are marked with an asterisk (*). 

Electronics Engineering Technology AAS Prerequisites:

  • Placement into ENGL&101 or higher
  • Placement into MATH&141 or higher or successful completion of equivalent class (or higher)
  • BUS169 or equivalent computer experience.

 Note: Advanced placement testing, work experience, and transfer of credits may result in course waivers, credit transfer, and advanced placement.
