It is noted that, as expert systems technology expands, it is engulfing many areas of industry which are targets for EET (electrical engineering technology) and MET graduates. Systems engineering and product testing involve diagnostics software which in many cases can best be implemented and maintained using expert systems. Programmable controllers are being developed with fuzzy logic and other methods to reason in the face of uncertainty. In order to expose students to these concepts, artificial intelligence, in the form of expert systems, is being introduced in a lower-division required course as well as an upper-division elective. The author describes the content and goals of these courses and offers a justification of expert systems as an emerging technology worthy of study
