College
Department
Regional College
Description

The Associate of Applied Science in Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology provides students with a core of engineering-related courses and a focus on digital and electronic systems, robotics, microsystems and the design/development of electrical and electronic circuits. Computer and general options are available which allow students to further specialize; adjustments to optional course requirements may be made by a faculty advisor based upon student need and course availability. Requirements articulate with the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology. This major is available at the AshtabulaTrumbull and Tuscarawas campuses. Admissions on the Ashtabula Campus are suspended through fall 2014 and will resume contingent on university approval procedures.

Career Opportunities

In 2008, engineers held about 1.6 million jobs.

About 36 percent of engineering jobs were found in manufacturing industries, and another 30 percent were in the professional, scientific, and technical services industries, primarily in architectural, engineering, and related services. Many engineers also worked in the construction, telecommunications, and wholesale trade Industries.

Federal, State, and local governments employed about 12 percent of engineers in 2008. About 6 percent were in the Federal Government, mainly in the U.S. Departments of Defense, Transportation, Agriculture, Interior, and Energy, and in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Many engineers in State and local government agencies worked in highway and public works departments. In 2008, about 3 percent of engineers were self-employed, many as consultants.

Engineers are employed in every State, in small and large cities and in rural areas. Some branches of engineering are concentrated in particular industries and geographic areas; for example, petroleum engineering jobs tend to be located in States with sizable petroleum deposits, such as Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Alaska, and California. Other branches, such as civil engineering, are widely dispersed, and engineers in these fields often move from place to place to work on different projects.
