Electrical Engineering Technology is a great starting point for students interested in a career that will shape the future of industry, office, and home electronics products. Students take classes in circuits, electronics, computer programming, operational amplifiers, telecommunications, microprocessors, and motors and controls in addition to the core courses of English, math, social science, and physical education.
Career opportunities can be found in specialized fields including aerospace, defense, electrical and electronic systems design and maintenance, manufacturing, telecommunications, electrical machinery, and more. This two-year program also prepares students to continue their studies at the baccalaureate level in engineering technology.
Graduates enter the workforce with the technical knowledge, problem-solving and teamwork skills necessary to get a job in the industry or move on to a four-year college fully prepared for their coursework.

|Full-Time and Part-Time Enrollment|
It is recommended that students enrolling in the EET program complete at least two high school mathematics courses and one laboratory science course (chemistry and physics are recommended).
Preparing our students for transfer to four-year baccalaureate programs in engineering technology is also a significant focus area for our program. We assist students with resumes, transfer applications, letters of recommendation and more.
Articulation agreements between MVCC and other schools ease the transfer of most or all credits when students transfer to four-year colleges. MVCC has articulation and/or joint admissions agreements with four-year universities including SUNYIT and others.
Career opportunities can be found in specialized fields including electrical machinery, electronic controls, analog and digital circuitry, and telecommunications. Many graduates are able to enter the workforce after completing their two-year degree at MVCC.
