The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) marketable skills initiative is part of the state’s 60x30TX plan and was designed to help students articulate their skills to employers.  Marketable skills are those skills valued by employers and/or graduate programs that can be applied in a variety of work or education settings and may include interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas.

The BS in Engineering Technology - Concentration in Electronics is designed to provide graduates with the following marketable skills:

  • Select and effectively apply modern electric, electronics, controls, and computer devices and systems.
  • Test and troubleshoot for effective and efficient operations of analog, digital, microcontroller and communication circuits and systems. 
  • Embed state-of-the-art automation, robotics, instrumentation, and data acquisition hardware and software tools into industrial environments.​
  • Prepare technical reports, product manuals, and testing instructions; and communicate effectively.
  • Learn and apply safety and supervisory skills related to the electronics industry.
