Electronic Systems Engineering Technology - BS
Electronic Systems Engineering Technology (ESET) prepares graduates for careers in electronic product and system development across a diverse range of industries that include the medical, computer, power, automotive, oil and gas, information/communication technologies, and quality of life sectors. While graduates of the program receive a rigorous technical education and take engineering and technology positions within industry, they are also well prepared for positions in technical sales and project management. The ESET curriculum is based on a strong underpinning of engineering math and science courses followed by a core technical sequence. This core includes analog and digital electronics, embedded systems design, software development using C and assembly language, wired/wireless communications, electronics test, statistical tools for engineers, instrumentation and control systems. Throughout their curriculum, students work on multiple open-ended projects to design, implement, test, and evaluate hardware and software systems. One of the most unique aspects of the Electronic Systems Engineering Technology program is that almost every technical course provides a hands-on laboratory experience using facilities equipped with state-of-the-art computer systems, test equipment, and industry-standard computer-aided design and analysis packages. The technical curriculum is augmented with coursework in written and oral communications, product/system development, device/system testing and technical project management. A team-based industry-sponsored capstone design sequence provides a challenging opportunity to apply technical, managerial, and communications skills to solving a real-world problem.
The Electronic Systems Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org/.
ESET Program Mission
The Electronic Systems Engineering Technology Program at Texas A&M University prepares graduates for immediate impact and long-term career success by providing a real-world experiential education coupled with personalized undergraduate experiences in electronics product development, test, system integration, and engineering research.
ESET Program Educational Objectives
The Electronic Systems Engineering Technology Program at Texas A&M has as its primary educational objectives to produce graduates who, after three to five years:
- possess the technical skills to be productive, innovative, and have successful careers in regional, state, national and/or global electronic product and system development industries.
- demonstrate increasing levels of leadership, teamwork, and ability to communicate technical information to technical and non-technical stakeholders during their careers.
- exhibit a commitment to professional ethics in their careers.
- display a desire for a life time of further challenges and learning, and flexibility to adapt to a fast-changing environment in engineering industries.
A continuous cycle of assessment and program improvement is used to ensure that these objectives are being met. Through interactions with industry and academic partners, the Electronic Systems Engineering Technology program continues to offer a state-of-the-art curriculum that produces successful graduates.
