The Department of Engineering Technology, Surveying, & Digital Media, a unit of the College of Business and Technology [CBAT], is one of the largest and most academically diverse units of East Tennessee State University. The Department offers undergraduate degree programs in numerous concentrations, undergraduate minors in two areas, and graduate degree programs in three concentrations. Several programs are accredited through ABET. Additionally, there are many majors and/or programs that are available through the Academic Common Market allowing out-of-state students to enroll at ETSU at in-state tuition rates.

The department’s adminstrative and faculty offices are housed primarily in two buildings on the ETSU main campus. The Engineering Technology and Surveying & Mapping programs are located in Wilson-Wallis Hall while the Digital Media program is housed across State of Franklin Road from the main campus in the Scott M. Niswonger Digital Media Center.

General Program Information


To earn a degree from ETSU, there are specific course requirements put forth by ETSU, by the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR), by each college, and by each department. All students must meet the degree requirements at each of these levels. Please follow the format below:

University-level Degree and Graduation Requirements


Total Credit Hours for Degree: 128


TBR General Education Requirements: 41 Credit Hours


Below you will see the categories and courses specified under TBR General Education Requirements. Note that certain courses are required for this degree, specific to this major. Thus, these courses will satisfy both a TBR General Education requirement AND a requirement of this major. (Other majors may require different General Education courses.) Where specific courses are required for this major, we only list those courses under the category. If there are no specific major requirements for a category, all course options appear.

To Students Transferring into the Electronics Engineering Technology Program at ETSU


All students, including transfer students, must complete the published curriculum in electronics engineering technology in effect the year of their entry into the program. All students transferring into the B.S. degree electronic engineering technology program must take a minimum of four electronics courses that must include ENTC 3310 —Circuit Analysis. No associate degree coursework will be accepted for electronic coursework at the 4XXX level.

If the transfer student is from a program that is not accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), the required minimum must also include ENTC 3320 —Electronics II. It is the students’ responsibility to provide evidence that the transferred coursework was completed at an ABET-accredited institution. (This information would usually be found in the school’s catalog.)
