Southern Utah University’s Electronics Engineering Technology bachelor’s program prepares you to enter a field that is rich in career opportunities. For the past few years, 100 percent of our Electronics Engineering Technology graduates have had jobs in the field lined up before graduation. The SUU college degree is accredited by ABET, the respected international accrediting body for engineering and technology programs. The four-year Bachelor of Science degree offers a well-balanced combination of design, theory, and hands-on instruction that prepares students well for the challenges they will encounter on an electrical engineering job.
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.
Excellent Electronics labs are one of the strengths of the Electronics Engineering Technology program on the Southern Utah University campus in Cedar City. These labs are equipped with the latest electronics test equipment including a PCB routing machine.
By the time you complete the requirements for the Electronics Engineering Technology bachelor’s degree, you will be well equipped with the knowledge and skills you need to begin an exciting career in this high-demand field.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics the anticipated career growth for Electronics Engineers is 4 percent and the median annual salary is $89,630. This information, however, is not consistent with what graduates of the SUU Electronics Engineering Technology program have experienced. Every one of our graduates in recent years has found employment in the field before graduation, some earning starting salaries significantly above $100,000.
