Embedded systems are a crucial part of modern life, from consumer products to industrial applications. These systems rely on an integration of hardware and software in specific applications. Employers need engineers who understand how these components work together.
ODU's electrical engineering technology program will provide you with core courses in:
- electronic devices
- digital electronics
- linear electronics
Your embedded systems coursework will focus on microprocessors and microcontrollers. This includes the design, testing, and development of embedded systems and their components. You will also take two elective courses. Your electives may extend your embedded systems training or broaden your knowledge in other areas of electrical engineering technology.
When you graduate, you will earn a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET) with a major in Electrical Engineering Technology and concentration in Embedded Systems Technology. Graduates of this program are eligible to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam in Virginia and many other states. This exam is the first step to licensure as a professional engineer.
ODU's electrical engineering technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
