EET & ET Programs Offer Immediate Job Prospects & Course Transferability
Printer-friendly Program Planning Guides for Electronics Technology and Electronics Engineering Programs:
North Seattle College offers several choices for electronics study.
The 2-year Electronics Engineering Technology degree program prepares you for advanced technical training. Many EET graduates transfer courses from the NSC program into the BS program in electronics engineering technology at Central Washington University or Eastern Washington University. (Please contact an advisor and your intended college or university regarding North's partnerships with particular institutions and additional requirements for transfer.)
If you want to go to work immediately upon completion of your program, the coursework will give you an excellent foundation in applied engineering.
The Electronics Technology certificate and AAS degree programs provide a broad foundation in electronics training. Instruction emphasizes a hands-on approach, use of sophisticated test equipment, and a solid base of information concerning computer hardware and software for technical applications. These programs offer job training directed toward immediate employment and future advancement with companies specializing in manufacturing or servicing all types of electronic equipment.
North also offers two aviation electronics certificates, providing you with basic knowledge, skills and abilities for employment in aerospace-related technologies.
North’s electronics programs allow you to keep your options open as you train in the field. Start with a short certificate, go to work, and then return to get another certificate in a related electronics area or work toward an AAS degree. The core electronics coursework is the same, so no time is wasted, and you can move from one program to another at any point.
The EET curriculum has more transfer-level math and physics, while ET offers a more general overview with technical math and physics. Take a daytime or evening schedule or mix and match, and study in large, well-equipped labs. Externships are available but not required.
Partnerships with local manufacturers create job possibilities for grads. EET and ET programs are popular among employers because EET graduates are skilled in practical engineering applications. ET grads perform well in advanced training.
Both programs are designed to put you to work after 2 years, which is the choice for most grads. Many companies offer good tuition reimbursement programs so you can finish a degree part-time while working.
