Electrical Engineering Technology is part of the School of Polytechnic .  Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) prepares students for the application of engineering principles and technological developments for the creation of useful products and process in electrical and electronic systems. Similar to electrical engineering, EET deals with the implementation design, application, installation, manufacturing, operation or maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems.


Program Educational Objectives:

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

  • Demonstrate fundamental and emerging mathematical, scientific, engineering, and technical skills necessary to function as an electrical, electronic, computer, or engineering technician.
  • Demonstrate knowledge, skills, and techniques in the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electronic/computer systems.
  • Demonstrate continuous learning, either on the job or in a B.S. degree program.
  • Demonstrate communications skills necessary to function effectively as a member of an engineering team.
  • Demonstrate an awareness of the social, ethical, and global impact of their work upon the profession and society.

Student learning outcomes for the degree are:  

       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 two-year A.S. Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program is a combination of courses in electricity, electronics, computers, mathematics, science, and general academic areas. The program helps students prepare for employment as electrical/electronic or computer technicians,and provides knowledge in fields such as computer electronics, local area networking, industrial electronics, communication electronics, military electronics, automation, electronics servicing, and electrical power.  Upon completion of the A.S. EET, all credits can be applied to B.S. EET.

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:

Program Requirements:

  • Students must complete all Core and Advanced Core Courses, Technical Electives, and General Education earning grades of C- or better.
  • Student Responsibilities:  You are responsible for satisfying the graduation requirements specified for your selected program.  Thus, it is essential that you develop a thorough understanding of the required courses, academic policies, and procedures governing your academic career.  All requests for exceptions    to specific requirements must be made in writing and may be granted only by written approval from the appropriate chair.
  • Transfer credit limits, see Academic Regulations above.
  • General Education and Major courses as listed below.

General Education Requirements: Credits 31


Total Credits: 60


Student Responsibility


All dual degree students are responsible for satisfying the graduation requirements specified for their selected programs. Thus, it is essential that they develop a thorough understanding of the required courses, academic policies, and procedures governing their academic career.

All requests for exceptions to specific requirements must be made in writing and may be granted only by written approval from the appropriate chair or dean.
