The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology program provides the students with the knowledge, skills and necessary training for designing and building electrical and electronic devices, systems and processes. Electrical engineering technologists find employment in such areas as computer systems and networks, electronics, telecommunications, power generation and distribution, controls, instrumentation and automation. Activities include design, liaison, installation, maintenance, services and sales.

The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology curriculum requires the successful completion of 128 credits. It includes mathematics, basic sciences, English composition and communications, humanities and social sciences, and technical courses.

Educational objectives

The B.S. in Electrical Engineering Technology program will produce graduates who:

  • Enter into and advance their careers in the analysis, design, development, application, implementation, building, manufacturing, installation, testing, operation and/or maintenance of electrical and electronics systems, including those used in control, instrumentation, communications, computer or power.
  • Continue their education to obtain advanced degrees, licenses or certifications.
  • Continue to conduct themselves as both responsible professionals and global citizens, who are aware of and who understand ethical issues and societal needs and problems.

Student Outcomes

Each electrical engineering technology graduate will demonstrate the following attributes and achievements as required by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET upon or before graduation:

  • An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
  • An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  • An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
  • An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
