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. Students must complete all courses in the degree with a C- or better, this excludes free electives.
Program Educational Objectives:
- 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 outcomes for the degree are as follows:
- an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-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 to improve processes; and
- an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
- 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.
- 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 B.S. 4-Yr. Plan:
- Students must complete all courses in the degree with a C- or better, this excludes the free elective.

You are responsible for ensuring that you satisfy all graduation requirements specified for each selected program. Thus, it is essential that you develop a thorough understanding of the required courses, academic policies, and procedures governing your academic career. If you cannot complete all program requirements by your stated graduation date but fail to remove those from your plan of study, the Registrar’s Office in consultation with your academic advisor will remove unmet pursuits from your plan of study. Changing curricular records during the graduation term of application may affect state or federal financial aid awards. 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.
