MSET: Electrical Engineering Technology Specialization

Imagine a world without electricity. Electronic systems and devices are everywhere, therefore Electrical Engineering Technicians (EET) are needed for employment in many companies. The EET specialization of Mechatronics at Virginia Western Community College prepares students to work in electronics in fields such as electronic assembly, computers, cable and satellite TV, audio electronics, electronic security, high voltage transformers, electrical energy, medical devices, mechatronics manufacturing, transportation, and building design and technologies. Students also may transfer to a 4-year school such as ODU in Electrical Engineering Technology.
