This program (known as EET) offers a combination of engineering theory and hands-on skills using state-of-the-art equipment. Class and lab size are kept small, giving students ample opportunity to interact with instructors.

The majority of program courses are taught by full-time faculty with advanced degrees and significant, relevant industry experience. Graduates can continue their education by transferring to at a 4-year engineering program, and students are dual admitted to UNH’s EET bachelor’s degree program.

1Indicates major field courses 2Students planning to pursue 4-year degrees should consider taking Calculus-based Physics and discuss this option with their academic advisors. To meet the requirements, students may need to alter their course sequence; contact your academic advisor for assistance. 3Students are required to complete a minimum of 1 math course from Math List A. If ELET 251C is substituted for MATH 206C, students are required to complete a minimum of 1 math course from Math List B:      Math List A: MATH 206C, MATH 208C, MATH 210C      Math List B: MATH 205C, MATH 208C, MATH 210C It is recommended students who plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in engineering take both MATH 206C and MATH 210C. For students with a need for a reduced course load, a 3-year version of this program is available. Contact the department chair for details.  

Applicants require at least three years of college preparatory math (Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry) with
minimum grades of C or higher. It is also recommended applicants have satisfactorily completed high school courses in Chemistry and Physics.

 

  • Proficiency in the use of commercial laboratory test equipment, standard mathematical techniques, and circuit simulation methods to accomplish analysis, design, and construction of analog and digital circuits
  • The ability to apply practical knowledge of math (at the level of algebra and trigonometry) and physics to electrical and electronic circuits
  • The ability to read a schematic, set up and use measurement equipment, accurately measure waveforms, and compare measured results with theoretical results calculated from a schematic
  • Demonstration of discipline-specific project management and teamwork skills
  • The ability to critically analyze problem statements, decompose a problem into subproblems, and develop appropriate solutions
  • The ability to produce written documents and deliver professional presentations
  • Demonstration of initiative in developing solutions to EET problems using documentation and research
  • Knowledge of social, technical, and professional ethics required in a professional environment, including a respect for diversity

Program Educational Objectives

  • Apply theoretical and practical knowledge and skills to analyze and solve complex problems.
  • Gain proficiency in digital and analog circuit analyses, circuit design, and lab techniques.
  • Communicate effectively in oral, written, and graphical modes in interpersonal and group situations.
  • Perform ethically and professionally in business and society.
  • Attain gainful employment in the field of EET and/or pursue an advanced degree.

Students who complete this program can enter into the following professions (not an inclusive list):

  • Electronic circuit designer
  • IoT developer
  • Microprocessor/embedded system developer
  • Computer hardware designer
  • FPGA/PLD developer
  • System verification engineer
  • Electrical/electronics engineering technician 
  • Electro-mechanical technicians

 

Specific Admissions Requirements

Applicants require at least three years of college preparatory math (Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry) with
minimum grades of C or higher. It is also recommended applicants have satisfactorily completed high school courses in Chemistry and Physics.

 

This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

 

Students complete a capstone project over two consecutive semesters. This hands-on experience strengthens their ability to apply engineering theory to the development of practical solutions to real-world engineering problems. A fully equipped project lab and mentoring by faculty with extensive industry experience/expertise provide a unique learning environment. Prospective employers see this as a distinguishing feature of NHTI’s EET program.
