Engineering Technology, Electronics Emphasis

Southern Utah University’s Engineering Technology, Electronics Emphasis program prepares you to enter a field that is rich in career opportunities. For the past few years, 100 percent of our Engineering Technology, Electronics Emphasis graduates have had jobs in the field lined up before graduation. Classes are purposely kept small (10-15 students) so that instructors can work closely with each student. In addition to the hands-on experience students gain in the classes themselves, many students earn internship credit associated with part-time jobs held in the Electronics field while they are still students.

Students in the Engineering Technology, Electronics Emphasis program complete a capstone experience that requires them to contact a company and design and produce a project that the company would like to have completed. The capstone experience has led directly to a job offer in a number of cases.
