ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY (EET)

Electronics technologists are needed by organizations that develop, test, manufacture, repair, and service: RF and uW communications, industrial and medical monitoring, control, navigation, and computer/network systems. Our programs emphasize both the understanding  and practical application of electronics principles and troubleshooting concepts. Our graduates are in demand for employment with industry and governmental agencies throughout the Washington- Baltimore region. Work/study opportunities to gain experience, credit, and pay are available. We offer instruction at our campus facilities in Largo, MD, convenient off-campus locations throughout PG county, and certain courses are conducted over television and the internet. Many scholarships are available. The two degree options (min. of 69 credit hrs.) are: Electronic Engineering Technology and Electronic Service Technology. Additionally, a certificate (min.of 22 credit hours) is available: Electronic Analysis and Repair. The Certificate can be easily upgraded to a degree. 

It is strongly advised to apply for a CERTIFICATE once its requirements are met- even if a Degree is the eventual goal.

Consult the College Catalog for course descriptions, costs, and registration procedures. Consult the PGCC Schedule of Classes  for class availability, times, and locations.

The Electronic Engineering Technology  program at Prince George's Community College is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (TAC/ABET), 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202. Only a select few schools have this accreditation. Additionally, the PGCC  EET program is endorsed by the FAA as exceeding its two-year "Common Principals" training at the FAA Academy. Graduates of the PGCC EET program are pre-qualified and do not need to take the technical entrance exam (B.E.S.T) for employment with the FAA.

Those who wish to continue their studies toward a four- year BSEET degree should choose the Electronic Engineering Technology program (EET). Graduates of the EET program at PGCC often transfer to Capitol College, Old Dominion University, or the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Additionally, graduates of the EET program can transfer into the engineering program at Capitol College.
