Electronics Engineering Technology
As a student enrolled in the Electronics Engineering training program at Lincoln Tech’s Allentown, PA campus, you’ll gain industry-specific skills for servicing and maintaining equipment in telecommunications, biomedical, information technology and more. The Electronics Engineering Technology training program is a degree-granting program offered at a campus that’s been training Pennsylvania’s workforce for almost 70 years. Growth of almost 5,000 jobs is projected across the state by 2026, and median pay rates in Pennsylvania topped $27/hour for this field last year**.
Skills Taught in our Electronics Engineering Tech School:
- Work with electronics technology like micro-controllers, microprocessors and semiconductors.
- Learn to calibrate, install, troubleshoot and repair electronic equipment.
- Build professional skills to begin a career as an Electronics Engineering Technician, Electro-mechanical Technician, or Field Service Technician.
- Prepare to work in industries like telecommunications, biomedical systems, information technology.
- Practice basic and advanced soldering.
- Study AC and DC currents, technical math, circuitry and more.
Video Overview of the Electronics Engineering Tech Program
Frank Herb, one of Lincoln Tech’s electronics instructors, walks us through the curriculum an EET student will experience at our Allentown campus. He starts with the basics; the theory of AC & DC circuits, Ohms law and the tools of the trade. Then the focus shifts to building a clean power source which the student will use to learn about and experiment with, micro-controllers and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) – these are the workhorses of industrial control that an EET graduate will program, maintain or repair in the industrial sectors they work in.
Mr. Herb then describes the progression of classwork to communications. Theory of AM/FM signals provides the student with a completely different experience with mathematics – it becomes “math with a purpose” when the student builds circuits, assembles fiber-optic devices and learn how to maintain network communications.
During the most recent reporting period, 9 out of 10 graduates from the Electronics Engineering Technology program in Pennsylvania got hired for the field after graduation.*** It’s time to get connected to an incredible new career, and Lincoln Tech’s Allentown campus – originally known as the Electronics Training Center – is the place to get the electronic engineering training you need to make it happen.
** Compared to the average in-state entry level rate of $16.31 per hour.
