Associate of Applied Science
Electrical / Electronic Engineering Technology
The field of electromechanical technology has revolutionized the way we live. Our entire economy and culture depend on such systems as electromagnetic induction for power generation; transformers for the delivery of electricity to homes, businesses and industry; motors, drives and programmable logic controllers for industrial process control, hydraulics and pneumatics for the transmission and control of forces and velocities. These systems can be found in virtually every kind of technology we use, from automotive, aircraft and spacecraft to agricultural and offshore-technology industries.
Students who are interested in electromechanical technology can pursue a four-year bachelor's degree or a two-year associate degree. The demand for technologists with the bachelor's degree who can make informed decisions based on technical knowledge and experience is increasing. A student with a two-year associate degree will enter industry and work with engineers, technologists and other engineering technicians.
Technicians are often involved in the manufacture, testing, trouble-shooting, sale and field service of electrical, electronic and computer systems. They are expected to keep up with the latest technological advancements. Typical job titles include: industrial electronic systems technician, electrical technician, electronic technician, installation technician, automation specialist, field-service representative, technical representative and engineering technician.

Your University Opportunity
BGSU Firelands, located in Huron, Ohio, is a regional campus and one of the seven undergraduate colleges of Bowling Green State University. We offer many of the advantages and resources of a major university, but in a smaller, more personal environment.
Generally, students are able to complete at least two years of coursework toward most of the 200-degree programs at BGSU before transferring to the main campus, or to another college or university.
BGSU Firelands offers students a wireless environment campus wide. Kiosks and public-access computers located in most campus buildings provide easy Internet access. In addition, there are several on-campus computer labs with a variety of computers and software programs.
The library, containing more than 30,000 volumes, is computer-linked to the more than 4 million items available through BGSU's libraries to provide excellent research opportunities.
Academic advisors work individually with students to plan their degree programs and small class sizes allow students to have close, personal contact with their professors. Free tutoring is readily available through the Teaching and Learning Center. Scholarships, grants and loans are available to assist students with tuition.
