Overview

As a student in the ABET accredited Electronic Engineering Technology program (EET), you will learn a combination of engineering theory and hand’s on skills using stat-of-the-art lab equipment. Class and lab size are kept small giving you ample opportunity to interact with your instructors. The majority of your program courses will be taught by full-time faculty with advanced degrees as well as significant and relevant industry experience. 

The Electronic Engineering Technology Program at NHTI, Concord’s Community College has graduated successful students since 1965. Some reasons for you to choose the EET program include:

  • Earn an Associate in Science in Electronic Engineering Technology in only two years
  • Choose from a wide variety of exciting job opportunities for graduates
  • Graduates can continue their education by transferring to at a 4-year engineering program
  • Students are dual admitted to UNH’s BS EET degree program.
  • The cost of earning an AS EET at NHTI is ½ the cost of the first two years of a 4-year engineering program
  • Day and evening classes available
  • If you can’t attend full-time, part-time options are available; your total tuition cost will remain the same.
  • Accredited by ETAC Commission of ABET

# Indicates major field courses. In order to fulfill the program degree requirements and to meet the prerequisite requirement of subsequent major field courses, students are required to earn a grade of “C-” or higher in each major field course. In addition to major field courses, students are required to earn a grade of “C-” or higher in each math and physics course.

Note: Students 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 strongly recommended that students who plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in engineering take both MATH 206C and MATH 210C.

***Students planning to pursue 4-year degrees should consider taking calculus-based physics and discuss this option with their academic advisors. In order to meet the corequisite and prerequisite requirements for calculus-based physics, some students may need to alter their course sequence shown above; please see your academic advisor for assistance.

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.

CL – Number of lecture/classroom hours per week for the course
LAB – Number of simulation laboratory, laboratory or clinical hours per week for the course
CR – Number of credit hours for the course

Careers

Here is just a sample of some of the exciting job opportunities for graduates:

Specific Admission Requirements

At least three years of college preparatory mathematics (Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry) with minimum grades of “C”;

  1. It is strongly recommended that all engineering technology applicants have satisfactorily completed high school level courses in chemistry and physics.

 

Capstone Project

Students in the electronic engineering technology program complete a capstone project over two consecutive semesters. This hands-on experience strengthens the student’s 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. Students find this experience both stimulating and valuable, perspective employers see this as a distinguishing feature of NHTI’s electronic engineering technology program.
