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 the 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 (AAS IET) 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.

The Associate in Applied Science in Industrial Electronics Technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ETAC-ABET) since 2014.  The next accreditation review is scheduled for 2022. http://www.abet.org/

Career Opportunities

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 our Bachelor of Science in Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology program.
