Courses

At Penn College, we believe your educational experience should go beyond specialized skills. Real-world ready means taking a broader approach that builds communication skills, inspires collaboration, and encourages exploration of arts, history, and science.

​​Specialization requires in-depth knowledge and high-level proficiency. Students learn and apply major-specific concepts, skills, and methods.

  • Introduction to Digital Electronics (EET114)
  • Digital Circuits Applications (EET115)
  • Electronic Circuits and Devices I (EET116)
  • Engineering, Technology, and Society (EET124)
  • Introduction to Microprocessors (EET154)
  • Microprocessor Applications I (EET155)
  • Electronic Circuits and Devices II (EET156)
  • Software Tools for the Engineering Technologist (EET158)
