Typically, our IET students can obtain career positions upon graduation by working in design, testing, or troubleshoot as an electronics technician. The IET graduate can also choose to continue at Ferris State University in our 2+2 laddering program. Two additional years of study, after the IET degree, leads to our Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology (BSEET) .
Our BSEET degree prepares the graduate to work as an Engineering Technologist in the fields of Industrial Automation and Controls, Digital and Embedded Systems Design, Electronic Communications, or Programming and Control Networks. Often our graduates work in career positions known as a Control System Integrator, Product Designer, Embedded Systems Developer, Control and Network Specialist, Technical Sales Specialist, Electrical/Electronics Product Specialist, etc.
