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 outcomes for the degree are:
an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
an ability to design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the engineering design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to the discipline
an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-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; and
an ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team.
- 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.
- 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.
Electrical Engineering Technology AS 2-Year Plan:
- Students must coplete all coures in the degree with a grade 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.
