The two-year A.S. EET program is a combination of courses in electricity, electronics, computers, mathematics, science, and general academic areas. The program helps students prepare for employment as electrical/electronic or computer technicians,and provides knowledge in fields such as computer electronics, local area networking, industrial electronics, communication electronics, military electronics, automation, electronics servicing, and electrical power.

The CEIT department also offers the Bachelor of Science with a major in electrical engineering technology, a Bachelor of Science with a major in computer engineering technology (CPET) and an Associate and  Bachelor of Science with a major in information systems. In addition to the degrees, the department offers a minor in electronics, and minor in information systems and certificate programs in computer-controlled systems, electronic communications, power electronics systems, and computer networking.
