Electrical Engineering Technology, B.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

Engineering Technology is a branch of engineering education that emphasizes the practical aspects of engineering rather than abstract concepts or theories. It is a blend of the application of science, engineering knowledge, and technical skills used in support of engineering activities. The Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) 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.

Laboratory experiences are important components of the EET curriculum. Most EET lecture courses have an associated laboratory course that must be taken concurrently. Also, EET students are required to take ECET 4900 Senior Capstone Design Project as part of their 13 hours of EET electives. Any non-required upper division (3XXX/4XXX) ECET course, with the exception of ECET 3000, 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 EET Department to obtain a list of acceptable courses from outside the major that count as an EET elective.

The Electrical Engineering Technology degree is designed to allow flexibility in the choice of EET electives. As an option, students may wish to choose two or more of their electives from a particular focus area.

The Bachelor of Science with a major in Electrical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
