The Electronic Engineering Technology (ELET) program at Fort Valley State University offers the only Bachelor of Science degree in Electronic Engineering Technology in Middle Georgia.

The mission of the program is to serve the traditional, non-traditional and under-served students of the state and nation and to provide them with the necessary knowledge and skills in electronics engineering technology in order to pursue careers in electronics and the related fields. The program seeks to develop the student’s ability to apply basic concepts and theories in the analysis and design of analog and digital circuits and systems and to use appropriate instrumentation for troubleshooting and analysis of electronic systems; to cultivate an awareness of the professional engineering standards and code of ethics; and to instill the value of teamwork and cooperation necessary for successful careers and living.

The field of Electronics constitutes one of the largest segments of today’s industrial and technological operations. This is due to the society’s total dependence on electronics for production, consumption, education and entertainment. Computers, automation in industry and at home, video and television, power generation and distribution, medicine and military defense are but a few areas heavily dependent on electronics technology.

This dependence has created a large demand for trained professionals in a wide range of activities related to design, development, production, operation and maintenance of electronic components and instruments and systems that utilize such components. The Electronic Engineering Technology program provides students with the engineering knowledge and technical skills to work in a variety of technological positions within the above areas, particularly in those dealing with application, implementation and production activities. Electronic Engineering Technology courses are designated ELET.
