Electrical Engineering Technology is part of the School of Polytechnic in the Department of Computer, Electrical, and Information Technology .


Program Educational Objectives:

Upon completion of the Electrical Engineering Technology (B.S.) students will:

  • Demonstrate the knowledge and ability to function as a member of a technical staff who can use current industrial practices and design procedures for development, implementation, and project management of electrical/electronic(s) and/or computer based software and systems. 
  • Demonstrate readiness for career advancement, promotion, and mobility.
  • Demonstrate continuous learning, either on the job or in graduate school.
  • Demonstrate the ability to function as a contributing member of society and the profession.
  • Demonstrate effective teamwork skills and recognize ethical responsibilities.

Student learning outcomes for the degree are as follows: 
       The graduates will have:      

  • An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined electrical engineering technology activities. 
  • An ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies.
  • An ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes.
  • An ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives.
  • An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team.
  • An ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems.
  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
  • An understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development.
  • An understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity.
  • A knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and
  • A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.

Accreditation:

  • The Electrical Engineering Technology degree is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
  • The four-year B.S. Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program prepares students for careers in many fields related to engineering, in electronics or computer related industries, manufacturing, engineering sales, or any industry that uses electric power, electronic communications, computer networks, or computer-controlled equipment. The program provides students with advanced study in specialized fields of electronics and computer networking and provides other courses to build a foundation of technical and non-technical knowledge that is essential in modern industry.

Program Delivery:

  • POLYTECHNIC programs emphasize practice-based learning via hands-on laboratory applications using state-of-the-art equipment. Some courses are available through online, distance, and hybrid learning, however many incorporate an on-campus laboratory element.

Declaring This Major:

Students interested in declaring Electrical Engineering Technology as their major may do so in one of two ways:

  • On their application when they first apply to the university.
  • After meeting with a faculty advisor, a change of major can be declared.

General Requirements:
