Electrical Engineering Technology

Students may pursue a two-year degree program that will result in an Associate of Applied Science degree in Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering concentration and will qualify the student to enter a baccalaureate engineering program as a junior.

Pellissippi State's Electrical Engineering concentration is designed to train individuals to function effectively as assistants to electrical engineers or independently as electrical/electronics technicians. The program prepares electrical engineering technicians to translate the engineer's designs into systems and projects, collect and analyze data, develop design layouts, inspect work, check and repair equipment and prepare reports for the engineering team.

Electrical engineering technicians acquire a general education background, including mathematics and science, while studying electricity and electronics and associated technical applications. 

Electrical Engineering technicians keep our wired world humming. Get connected to exciting opportunities in Manufacturing Automation, Micro-Computer Technology and Electronics Instrumentation. Enroll for your A.A.S. degree in Electrical Engineering today.  

Pellissippi State offers courses in:

  • AC/DC Circuits
  • Programmable Logic Controllers
  • Electronics
  • Micro-Computer Applications
  • Networking
