Why Choose Industrial Electronics Technology?

The Industrial Electronics Technology program is ideal for students interested in pursuing careers working with the latest electronic, computer and control technologies. This challenging program provides an exceptionally strong foundation in electronics theory supported by extensive hands-on experience through accompanying labs. Topics include amplifier and digital circuitry, programmable logic, microprocessors, instrumentation, simulation, troubleshooting and industrial automation. Real world theory and applications are emphasized throughout the program.

The Associate in Applied Science in Industrial Electronics Technology serves as the major preparatory program for the Bachelor of Science in Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology. The IET degree can also be used to ladder into other Bachelor degrees at Ferris State University.

Prepare for a Great Career

Aerospace, commercial, consumer, industrial, medical, security, and transportation technologies depend on electronic systems. The operation, implementation, and design of these require knowledgeable technicians and technologists. Industrial Electronics Technology graduates are employed in the design, testing, installation, and troubleshooting of industrial process control systems, robotics devices, communications systems and sophisticated instrumentation. Most qualifying graduates, however, choose to optimize their career opportunities by advancing into the Bachelor of Science in Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology program.

Admission Requirements

Admission to the College of Engineering Technology is open to high school graduates who demonstrate academic preparedness, maturity and seriousness of purpose with backgrounds appropriate to their chosen program of studies.

Admission requires a high school diploma or equivalent, two years of mathematics including algebra and trigonometry and a minimum ACT math score of 19. A laboratory science, preferably physics, and fundamental knowledge of personal computers are strongly recommended.

Graduation Requirements

The Industrial Electronics Technology program at Ferris leads to an associate in applied science degree. Graduation requires a minimum 2.0 GPA in core classes, in the major and overall. Students must complete all general education requirements as outlined on the General Education website.
