Electronic Engineering Technology Overview

With the AAS degree in Electronic Engineering Technology from Rhodes State, students are provided a theoretical base in engineering principles, mathematics and physics, along with practical hands‑on experience in the laboratory. The core courses begin by analyzing basic series and parallel DC and AC circuits and progress through amplifiers and integrated circuits. Additional courses include digital logic circuits, microcontrollers, and programmable logic controllers. Along the way, students learn to build and troubleshoot electronic circuits of their own. The overall aim of the curriculum is to teach the hardware and software programming design and implementation of electronic equipment as well as the development of software needed for programming it.

Scholarship Opportunity 

Rhodes State has been awarded a Choose Ohio First (COF) Scholarship grant by the Ohio Department of Higher Education. The grant provides scholarships to students majoring in disciplines that significantly strengthen Ohio’s competitiveness in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Medicine (STEMM) education and industry.
