Need help deciding?
Not sure if you want to transfer to a university to earn a Bachelors, or become a technician in two years or less? The classes aren't interchangable - get help choosing your path if you're not sure which option is right for you.
As part of your EET training, you'll have access to the PCC MakerSpaces, which feature 3D printers, laser cutters, sewing machines for wearable tech, soldering stations, CADD access, classes, and more!
For more than 50 years, our Electronic Engineering Technology (EET) program has produced graduates whose superior skills and abilities have helped them obtain excellent jobs and pursue advanced degrees. Many of our graduates have achieved upper-level positions as engineering managers and quality control technicians in some of the Northwest’s most reputable firms, including Intel, Biotronik, Sunset Solar, Cascade Microtech, and many Portland area hospitals including OHSU, Providence and the Veteran's Medical Center.
Our program is at an institution accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges Commission. In addition, our program offers unique flexibility with day and evening courses, "real-world" training, and quality instruction from those who possess advanced degrees and a broad range of industry experience.
The EET program and all its options have partial transferability into the BS EET program of the Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT), and into many BS EET programs. This is the transfer agreement between OIT's BSEET and PCC's EET. If you have any questions related to this agreement please contact the EET Department Chair Sanda Williams or the OIT's BSEET Program Director, Dr. Aaron Scher. Linda Browning, Student Resource Specialist can also answer questions.
Employers prefer college graduates, so where and with whom you study can make big difference. Our program’s difference is clear.
