The Electronic Systems Engineering Technology (ESET) Program at Texas A&M University provides a recognized undergraduate educational program with an emphasis in electronics, communication, embedded systems, testing, instrumentation and control systems, performs applied research for educational, government, and industrial entities in the state and nation, and conducts professional development and other activities to meet the needs of the private and public sectors.
The program combines engineering and industrial knowledge and methods to develop, design, and implement new innovative products. Electronic Systems Engineering Technology graduates find challenging careers in application engineering, test engineering, network analyst, system engineering, software developer and engineering project management positions at high-tech companies.
The capstone experience successfully prepares future engineers by bridging the gap between classroom and industry. Students are required to use their knowledge and skills to complete an engineering design project equivalent to the assignments they will soon receive as professional engineers. Students perform the projects in groups, forcing them to develop the skills necessary to succeed in diverse industry design teams. Employers value graduates with capstone design experience because these students have gained broad experience by applying their extensive knowledge base to solve complex engineering problems as a team.
