Ivy Tech Community College announces expansion of its electrical engineering program for the Fall 2014 semester

INDIANAPOLIS – Ivy Tech Community College will now offer Electrical Engineering Technology at an additional 5 campuses starting Fall 2014. Initially offered at just the South Bend and Indianapolis campuses, Electrical Engineering Technology will now be offered at campuses in Fort Wayne, Anderson, Bloomington, Valparaiso, and Terre Haute.

Ivy Tech will offer an associate of science degree in the program, which is four semesters, or 60 credit hours, of study.

The new program will prepare students for careers including
• Computing
• Networking
• Robotics
• Biomedical
• Energy management
• Transportation

Graduates from this program will be able to work with engineers and technicians to implement electronic designs and perform engineering tasks including data work and electronic systems work. Through articulation agreements with Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and Purdue University North Central, Ivy Tech graduates from this new program can continue their studies for a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering Technology at one of those universities. For those not looking to transfer, the degree will ready graduates for positions that local industries are looking to fill, says Andy Bell, who will chair the new program at the Fort Wayne campus.

“The Electrical Engineering Technology degree is a nationally recognized program,” Bell says. “I have been involved in electronics for 40 years and have seen many changes. I am still excited about electronics and enjoy seeing all students learn about it. They become initiated into a unique group of people who develop an understanding and appreciation for the invisible subatomic particle, the electron.”
