This paper describes the use of engineering case studies to teach associate degree electrical engineering technology (2EET) students at the Penn State University, Altoona College (Penn State Altoona). Engineering case studies are used in several 2EET courses such as digital electronics (EET 117), semiconductors (EET 210), and electrical machines (EET 213W). The paper begins with a description of the need for the use of engineering case studies to teach engineering technology students. Development and implementation of the case study based instructional model used in several 2EET courses is described next. The results of implementation of this instructional technique in the 2EET courses are presented in the paper.
