Bloomsburg University’s bachelor of science degree program in Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) teaches students to work with the latest high-tech equipment and prepare for in-demand rewarding careers in industry.
The day-to-day problem-solvers in the electronics manufacturing industry, technologists differ from technicians, who specialize in assembly, trouble-shooting and repair. Engineering technologists identify and solve problems with a hands-on approach based on sound theoretical concepts. Bloomsburg's curriculum reflects that practical approach.
To prepare students for real-world careers, the 4.5-year program is structured so students serve a six-month paid apprenticeship. This unique arrangement means students pay tuition for only four years.
EET Industry Influence
Reflecting Bloomsburg's close relationship with the electronics industry, the curriculum has been shaped with input from industry leaders, who serve on the program's advisory board. These leaders include representatives from Pennsylvania high-tech firms such as:
- L3 Communications, Williamsport
- Geisinger Health System, Danville
- Talen Energy, Berwick
- Thermal Product Solutions, New Columbia
- ISS Solutions, Danville
- Grantek Systems Integration, Allentown
- Martz Technologies, Berwick
- Girton Manufacturing, Millville
