The Electrical Engineering Technology program prepares graduates to enter the technical workforce in a variety of fields. Communications, instrumentation, automation, control systems, power, robotics, computers, and medical electronics are but a few of these fields. Within these fields, Electrical Engineering Technology graduates are typically involved in areas such as: development, design, quality assurance, technical documentation, production, maintenance, test, field service, or technical sales.
EET students are required to take one project-based capstone course as part of their 13 hours of EET electives. Contact the ECET Department to obtain a list of acceptable EET project-based capstone courses. Any non-required upper division (3XXX/4XXX) ECET course, with the exception of ECET 3000, ECET 3010 & ECET 4830, may be used for the remainder of their EET electives. Students may also choose one course from outside the major to count as an EET elective. Contact the ECET Department to obtain a list of acceptable courses from outside the major that count as an EET elective.
Students may wish to focus their EET electives in a particular area of Electrical Engineering Technology. Suggested choices are in the areas of biomedical, communications, digital, power, and telecommunications.
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
