New Curriculum Information

Changes

Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana, Terre Haute, Indiana

As of January 2008

 

In February 2006, the Electronics State Committee voted to modify the Electronics & Computer Technology curriculum.  This change will put the Electronic core classes more in line with an EET core curriculum.  This change will make it easier for various regions who desire to articulate with Purdue and various Purdue satellites.  While the Associate of Science Degree will reflect these changes, the articulation with Indiana State University in Terre Haute, Indiana will still remain in effect.    

Will all these changes take place in the Fall 2006 semester?  No, this curriculum will be a 2-year phase in.  New students starting Fall 2006 will be the first group starting on the new curriculum.  The returning third semester students will continue on the curriculum they started a year ago.  Special situations will be resolved case-by-case. 

 Effective FALL 2008, all course prefixes will change to a four-letter format because of the new statewide computer system.  The Electronic courses and semester sequence will change slightly.  If you started in the Fall 2007, you will continue with that specific sequence.  For those who started when the prefix was ELT - contact your advisor for course crossover (prefix changes).  The new Electronic prefixes for all courses will be EECT.  The modified course names took effect in the Fall 2007 more closely match the curriculum of Purdue University to facilitate articulation.  Transferability with Indiana State University is the Associate of Science Degree.     

The information in this section will be a continuing project as semesters change and curriculum items become more defined - so check back periodically to review the changes and updates. 

ALWAYS check with your Program Advisor for additional courses that meet the Humanities/Social Sciences requirement. 

 

The information below represents the changes in curriculum for the Associate of Science Degree (AS).  This is the transfer degree to the School of Technology at Indiana State University.  If a student completes this list of courses with a B- or better, a student can transfer this "block" of credits into the Electronics Technology department at ISU and transfer in ready to take junior level classes.

ALWAYS check with your Program Advisor for curriculum changes.

The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in the past had specialties - Computer Systems Networking, Industrial, and Instrumentation.  With the new curriculum changes - there will be a slight variation of specialties - they will now be called "Concentrations".  There will be a specific technical core with special student concentrations.  Those concentrations will be in the area of: (1)computer systems networking; (2) industrial; and (3) instrumentation.  The CISCO option for the computer systems networking concentration is a collaboration between the Electronics department and the Computer Information Technology department.  As long as there is sufficient students to support the class, the CISCO option will continue.  If student support for the CISCO option decreases below the administrative minimum class size - it will probably be canceled.  ALWAYS check with your Program Advisor.  

The following information reflects the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) technical core and the various concentration courses that will be available.
