Electrical Engineering Technology

Study advanced engineering curriculum in a hands-on environment.

 

Experience hands-on electrical systems design, development, and troubleshooting with challenging coursework in science, mathematics, and automation.

The 2-year Electrical Engineering Technology degree at Minnesota State College Southeast in Winona will prepare you to enter industry as a front-line engineering technician. These professionals work with technologists, engineers, and management to assist in the design, development, and implementation of systems ranging from printed circuit board assemblies to industrial robots.

You will also have the mathematical and analytical background to pursue a 4-year degree through one of our engineering university partners:

Students have the option to double major in both Electronics Technology and Electrical Engineering Technology, allowing for maximum exposure to laboratory-based electronics principles as well as to physics, calculus, and advanced electronics curriculum.
