Career Opportunities

Integrated Engineering Technology (InET) students are in demand by business and industry in installation, maintenance and administration of computer and telecommunications systems and the development, operation and maintenance of automated systems. They also find employment as electronics or electromechanical technicians in a wide range of industries.

The Associate in Applied Science degree consists of skills training in mechanics, computer, telecommunications, and electronics technology. Program course work includes theoretical background in fiber optics, industrial electricity, national electrical code, schematic interpretation, robotics and artificial intelligence, critical thinking for technology applications, and maintenance and repair coupled with extensive lab time spent in a "hands-on" learning environment.

Students completing the InET A.A.S. can move directly into the workplace or continue their education toward a Bachelor's degree through articulation agreements with such colleges as Bradley University, the Illinois Institute of Technology, Northern Illinois University or DeVry University.
